(Playa Mita Iberostar Resort, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico)
On the second day in Mexico my vacation gave to me, two ways in which to embarrass myself.
After day one’s success spent by the pool, it wasn’t a big surprise to find everyone back enjoying the hot Mexican sun. Oh, and perhaps a cocktail or two in our handy orange cups!
Less than 24 hours at this resort and I was already starting to choke on all the bad things I’d said about all-inclusives in the past. Last night’s supper was delicious, the staff was phenomenal, and the things to do were limitless. Or should I say, the things to embarrass yourself doing were completely available and were just such a good time!
On a trip back from the washroom I heard my name being called and found Delma, Jim, and Muff playing bingo. My mother went through a bingo obsession in my childhood – who knows maybe she’s still in it? – and we played bingo at seemingly every school function and family event. So I was certainly not going to turn down a chance to join in here. As the game was already in progress, Delma kindly offered me one of her cards and I set straight to losing terribly. A skill I have honed, as mentioned, since my childhood.
After bingo wrapped up, murmurs of Zumba wafted in with Nicole and all her lovely ladies. Before I knew it, we were all shaking what our Momma’s gave us, sweating it out, trying to keep up to our Latino instructor. No offence ladies, but we all know that guy could move his hips better than any of us! (Greg would like to inset here – his hips don’t lie.)
