It was when I rolled into Las Vegas that it struck me - It all felt very familiar.
Not in the sense of just having seen pictures of Las Vegas before (pictures never give a true sense of what a place is like anyway). No, like Ive lived here a long time, as familiar as Chicago or New York feels to me.
I have NEVER been to Vegas before, let me emphasize.
If that wasnt weird enough, the other night I was talking to a couple while riding one of Las Vegas's double decker buses, then it dawned on me, the conversation I was having, the surroundings felt awfully familar, like a movie Id seen before.
Then it happened.
A young woman came on the bus with a stroller. As I watched she came over and put the baby carrier next to me, and I saw the towel covering the baby. I recognized the colors and pattern of the towel.
This towel had a picture SpongeBob Squarepants, but I recognized the writing - "Bob Esponja Pantalones". And thats when I realized I was havign a deja vu moment. A weird one.
I couldnt make this up.
Does this mean I will be in Vegas for awhile?
Let use see.
