"You dance with them that brung ya."

I have 3 things to say about the hotel and they involve all three of us.

A. Dizzy dancing in the elevator
2. Free popcorn, soda, and breakfast
C. The bathroom on the 22nd floor

Dizzy Dancing
The elevators here have the volume turned up on their "elevator music." Wendy and I really enjoyed dancing to it. As soon as the door shut we began. We were always careful to stop before the door opened again. The unfortunate part of this story is how dizzy you feel after you get off the elevator. It's a sick feeling. No dances were danced on the elevator ride following a large meal. Anne never danced, even on an empty stomach.

Free Stuff
All day, every day there is free soda. The downside of this is that I don't drink soda anymore. Every afternoon at 3 p.m. the hotel pops fresh popcorn. There are also free drinks with alcohol but I haven't gone to see how that goes down. And....every morning there is a big hot breakfast. Pancakes, eggs, toast, cereal, soda, juice, bagels, donuts, biscuits, etc. It's the best continental breakfast ever. These items may make up for the fact that there is no room service. We really enjoy room service.

Bathroom Commentary
I would like to dedicate this portion to Jennie Wilder.
On Saturday afternoon we explored the hotel together. We went to the roof to see the pool and observation deck. Anne and I had to go see a man about a horse while we were on the 22nd floor. Luckily, there was an abandoned bathroom up there. I usually roll alone on this kind of errand but this was out of my control. The funny part is that when you go into a bathroom and only your sister is in there you can make a lot of jokes. And we made them. It was hilarious. I've never laughed so hard in a public bathroom stall, ever! Since we were already on the topic, we brainstormed things I could say when my associates follow me into the bathroom at work to talk to me. If you have any suggestions for that, let me know.

Wendy was waiting in the hall. Apparently, she could hear a lot of laughing. She probably pretended she didn't know us when a group walked by to go to the pool. That is totally against the Texas code of "you dance with them that brung ya."
