Viva Last Vegas–Even More Awe And Wonder For Nigel ….

OMG …… we took Nigel to the Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel and now there’s no doing with him …..
Mir1110602He wants a dolphin ……

He says we’d only have to make the pool in our garden a bit bigger and then he could have one …..

Usually we humour Nigel, but this one had to be nipped in the bud straight away ….. no dolphin, no ifs or buts ……. a dolphin,  in an extended pool,  in a garden,  on the outskirts of Wolverhampton just aint going to happen  …… besides a dolphin would eat all the fish we already have as soon as we put him/her in the pool …… and as Nigel is very attached to them ….  that went a long way in swaying the argument!

It was easy to see why Nigel was so besotted …… the dolphins were enchanting and very magical …..
While Nigel was watching mesmerised,  oooooohing, ahhhhhing and sighing, I sneaked off under the pretence of needing a wee to see if I could book  a “Trainer for the Day” experience for him as I’d seen a leaflet on the way in (but which, fortuitously,  Nigel hadn’t) ……but, sadly, all the places were booked up for the whole duration of our time in Vegas ……. so I said nothing …… as I know how gutted Nigel would have been.MirP1110615To quote the Rolling Stones song “You can’t always get what you want”….. but Nigel, bless him, was just as happy with the experience he had had….. so much awe and wonder ……. however after five and a half hours of aforementioned oooooohing, ahhhhhing and sighing and awe and wonder I am afraid we eventually had to drag him away …….

I can just imagine Nigel talking to the dolphins.
Dolphins and kangaroos are very intelligent. They must be, because with a few clicks or a few tutting noises, both Flipper and Skippy could always inform other people, what the danger was.
I wonder what noise Nigel would make to talk to the animals. Maybe he could be another Doctor Doolittle.

Awe and wonder at every turn! Nigel dreams large and that makes life wonderful and can tell the dolphin is as fascinated with Nigel as Nigel is with the dolphin! So many happy Las Vegas days......Dianne

I can understand Nigel loving the dolphins they're amazing (and cute). What a pity you couldn't book the course.
