Books, covers and Vegas

I was in Vegas last weekend. Sunday morning, I standing in the Mandalay Bay enjoying a cup of coffee trying to clear previous evenings fog from my head. I was sporting one of my black, almost brown now, DC T-shirts that I wear all the time.

There was a fat hill billy type looking guy walking past me, drink in hand……..big dude, real tree camo hat and all. He looked down at my shirt, gave me a knowing nod and shot me the “devil horns”.

I thought to myself…..WTF? Who would have guessed a dude that looks like that would ride and be a DC minion. I figured him for one of those dudes that would show up on a ride on a rigid, 29er SS or a circa “91” Trek and just stomps everyone….It’s happened to me too many times to count.

As I continued this “can never tell a book by it’s cover” dialogue with myself I watched the guy as walked trough the casino. About thirty feet past me he gave a knowing look and shot the “devil horns” at a slot machine about ten feet past that he did the same to a small palm tree………..

You were right on one thing; you can never tell a book by it’s cover.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
