Threatdown: Orlando Edition

These were the major threats to my vacation in Disney/Orlando:



5. Male Strippers...taking 5 minutes to pay their $35 grocery total @ Wal-Mart using all $1 bills...thus causing my ice cream to melt, and a really weird guy insisting on talking to me in line. This guy didn't look like a typical male stripper....but I have heard of some female strippers being overweight & ugly, so why not male ones? Well, he was either a stripper or a waiter...I am guessing, stripper...do to the fact that after he handed the cashier his stack of ones, he grabbed the bag with the wine, and left the other two at the register.


4. Self-absorbed Teenagers...that take a picture of themselves in front of every object they stick in the lines of each ride, while posing inquisitively out into the open space (which is really filled with thousands of people being herded like cattle to the slaughter). This one kid literally took 50 pictures of himself while we waited in line for one of the rides...and had his little brother take even more....all the while holding up the line (that wasn't really moving anyways....but still!!).

3. People completely unaware of their surroundings...I will give you 3 examples. 1) The retarded people standing 2 inches away from the person at the RedBox while they enter in their personal information. 2) The retarded people that stop in the middle of the walkway, blocking walking traffic in both directions, while they look at a map...or just stop to stare at something. 3) The SUPER retarded people that drive more than 5mph under the speed limit...they are more dangerous than those that speed!!!

2. Cute capris...I have a pair of Apple Bottom jeans (I know I have ghetto booty...but I embrace it!!) I bought last year, and since the weather was nice I wore these on Christmas day when we went to Animal Kingdom. I had my cell phone in my back pocket, and we started making our way to the front of the park b/c a parade was about to start, when I reached in the pocket of said capris, and realized my phone was missing. My heart sank and I almost started to cry. I love these jeans, but things do have a tendency to fall out of the back pockets (I think it has to do with my huge butt...). Thankfully as soon as the phone was found they brought it to Guest Relations and I was able to retrieve it. And, I promptly sync'd it with my laptop to keep all my info backed up.


1. Germs...Eric started coughing the first few days of vacation which didn't bother me...until the hacking came. I have worked really hard in Nursing School to build up the stomach for poo, urine, & vomit...but mucus is beyond disgusting for me. I was literally fighting back my lunch for most of the vacation. Then, I started coughing...and sore throat...which ended up with a headache from Hades. So, as stated in my prior post, we left a day early and hit up the ER on the way home. I do have a sinus infection, and the antibiotics make me very sick to my stomach...but it is better than having the constant throbbing headache.
**This pic of me making the silly face is courtesy of Eric...we were stuck b/c of a parade, and I was getting frustrated...so he thought it was the perfect time to snap a shot. Plus, I was wearing the super awesome Tshirt that I bought from TAMN that says LOLOMGWTFLDSBBQ and I had a chick that was working one of the rides (who happened to attend BYU-I) stop me so she could figure out what it said. This actually happens all the time, and it cracks me up watching people try to figure out what it means!!!**
More updates from my adventures later...I know you just can't wait!!!

Germs totally suck.

Your threats are why I am thankful I can go to Disney at off times. So, is your shirt all acronyms that people use on texting. I just don't know the LDS part.

Orlando has strippers and stupid people...who knew? ;P

Sorry about the germs...it reminds me of yesterday I was waiting in line at the Starbucks and this couple in front of me were all over each other and all of a sudden she full out sneezed in his face. I was sooooo grossed out. SHE DID IT TWICE. bleh.

I want to go to Disney World. We went on our honeymoon to Disney Land and want to go to Disney World next!

So funny about the T-Shirt. I have a Fro Yo one. And people would stare and then ask about the Seriously So bLessed logo on the back. And I was at BYU-I! :)

Jen said...

I very much LOL that you have built up a tolerance to urine, poo, and VOMIT but mucus, of all things, still gets to you. Mucus? Really?

Mary said...

I really think it is the hacking noise that comes before the mucus...it adds to the nastiness of it all. But I still have some issues with vomit!
