OMG …… we took Nigel to the Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel and now there’s no doing with him …..
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.To 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 …….
…… with dreams of builder huts and high viz vests a million miles away ….. and now replaced with being a dolphin pool attendant in Last Vegas! What is he like?
