My next trip to Vegas will be boys only. My wife is my main Vegas partner, and my son has been there twice even though he just turned 2. I just feel the need to Vegas it up with the boys this time, and have some drinks, but not change diapers. I’m celebrating a milestone birthday, and for me, that was enough of an excuse to do it.
If I want my boys to go, it’s another story. We got to an age where we didn’t have to ask our parents for permission to do things. That passed by in a flash, and now we’re back to asking for permission again, but from our spouses this time. Based on what’s going on with the children, the money, the vacation time, the money, it’s not too easy to get everyone on the same page at the same time to pull off one of these trips.
I’m not blaming the spouses either. It’s tough to have to work and take care of kids with no help while your other half is in Sin City doing God knows what. I understand. For the wives to sign off on this, we might need to create the illusion that we’re doing this for a purpose. Something other than to just waste money and act like fools. Something that might just benefit the aforementioned spouses. I call it “The Better Husbands Convention”. Thousands of conventions are held in Las Vegas every year. Some far less believable than this one.
Intrigued??? Read the pitch……
Do you need your husband to be………. better? A better listener? Better at doing chores in a timely fashion? More attentive? Less of a football watcher? A better cook? A guy that makes the bed, and puts stuff away? Less stressed out? More stressed out? Colour coordinated? Willing to watch more Rom-Coms? Better with the kids? More of a handyman? More agreeable to your suggestions?……. For this and MUCH MUCH more, make sure he attends “The Better Husbands Convention” in Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada! For 4 nights and 5 gruelling days at the (favorite hotel on the strip) convention center, we will break your husband down and analyze everything that’s wrong with him. Then we begin the healing process. Our husband improvement experts will work closely with him in HI (husband improvement) workshops such as “Stop being such a crappy husband”, “Being better than you are currently” and “Let’s talk about our feelings”. Isn’t it time you gave him the resources he needs to be the husband you need? You need to send him to Las Vegas for “The Better Husbands Convention”. Let’s set him on the right path!
What do you think about that? Ladies, would you let your man go to Vegas to attend this fictitious event? We’ll see if it works. If even one poor bugger gets a Vegas trip out of this, then I’ve served my purpose!
