Disney World observations

You know the expression "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", well I've come to understand the same basic principle also applies to DisneyWorld.

What is in context in DisneyWorld, must stay in DisneyWorld

Inside the fantasy of Disneyworld, a 300 lbs woman with a tight pink t-shirt with the words "Princess" stretch across her massive tracts of land, is perfectly at home and acceptable within the gates. Once out of those gates ... well lets just say it loses a little of its lustre.

The same can be said for "Mickey" ears. You have a sense of "gotta have" while there. Be in on the fun. Would you wear those ears once home in your own Postal Code? For the most part, that is. In an effort to bolster my excitement about going a fellow co-worker, who was almost jealous for me, brought in his previously earned Mickey ears to the office the day before I left - to get me in the right frame of mind. In that instance it didn't seem completely out of place.

All this to say that I was constantly confronted with what was deemed acceptable within and without the walls of the happiest place on earth.

We really did have a fantastic time. And - yes - we did come home with our own set of mouse ears. We were going to buy some, but were given each a pair after riding one particular ride. Whewww Whooo!! I wore my for the rest of that day, but only within context.

This is us on the first day waiting for our shuttle to take us on a new adventure. (Pre-ears)

There will be more stories to come. I'm sorry its taken me so long to update. I only took two weeks off, but I feel like I'm backlogged beyond comprehension. It's all good, and I have more to share with you all.
