VEGAS TRIP WILL LIVE ON INDEFINITELY . . . OR UNTIL WE GET TIRED OF PLAYING TERRY FATOR

Have you and a friend ever had one of those “inside jokes” that run indefinitely and that no one else seems to understand? Well, one of those running jokes started during on the Bordas & Bordas Vegas trip last spring.  On the way to Vegas, my friend Michele and I overheard someone talking about wanting to see Terry Fator’s Vegas show.  At that time, I don’t think either of us knew who he was but we quickly learned.  One of the first things we saw when we arrived was a giant Terry Fator billboard.  Little did we know at that time that we would be seeing Terry Fator’s face just about everywhere we looked for the duration of our time in Vegas. When we arrived at our hotel, we went into Terry Fator overload.  We discovered that our hotel was actually the home of Terry Fator’s Vegas show.  As we walked through the casino to go to our room, we passed countless Terry Fator themed slot machines and posters advertising his show.  When we went into the market/gift shop to grab water to have in the hotel room we were confronted with Terry Fator shirts, stuff animals and other miscellaneous souvenirs.  By that time, we had probably been up almost 24 hours and could not stop laughing about seeing Terry Fator’s face all over the place.  And so the Terry Fator game began… For the next three and a half days, it was a contest to see who could see and point out something “Terry Fator” first.  From billboards, to bus station posters to placards on taxis, we didn’t have to look far to find the next “Terry Fator”.  I think we received more than a few strange looks from some of our traveling companions and other passersby when one of us would randomly blurt out “Terry Fator” and we would start laughing.  While I think we both assumed the Terry Fator game would end when we left Vegas, it seemed that fate (or Mr. Fator) had other ideas. As we were packing to leave, Michele found a Terry Fator postcard in the hotel room. I guess Mr. Fator wanted to come home with us.  After we returned home, the postcard would randomly appear in cars and purses– getting passed back and forth when the person not having Terry Fator custody at the time would least expect it.  While I think Michele currently has custody of the postcard – she stepped up the game a while back.  Let’s just say waking up to the “pleasure” of a picture of Terry Fator posted to my Facebook page is something not easily forgotten.  As soon as I stopped laughing, I knew I would have to step up my game.  Since it has taken me so long to respond, I’m guessing she thinks I have forgotten about it … but I haven’t.  I have just been planning my revenge.   Terry Fator will be returned to her when she least expects it and in a way that she won’t anticipate.  Once this plan has been fully executed, I will need new ideas to step up the game once more.  Any suggestions?
