I just got back from a business trip in the Dallas-Fort Wirth Texas area and had a wonderful time. My business associate insisted on us going out to some different clubs to party and dance the night away at. At first the responsible part of me said, “NO” we need to stay focused on the task at hand and I don’t want to have a hangover during our important presentation in the morning. That’s when my friend said, “YOLO” (you only live once) and said I know of a great new club I discovered that only plays electric and house style music to dance to. He could tell I was still reluctant, so he paused for a minute and said, “I tell you what, I will throw in a limousine ride to escort us through the night if you are willing!” Needless to say my friend is very well to do in life. So I really was having a hard time remaining responsible at his point. So I thought I could stump him with a simple question. I proceeded to ask, ok fine, but where are we going to get a limo last minute this late at night?
My business buddy said, “that is your only reservation? I use Lewisville Limousine (www.lewisvillelimousine.com) all the time for these exact type of situations! Do you really think I would make such an offer if I couldn’t produce?” At this point I felt really sheepish and trapped knowing I had no more excuses left in my arsenal. So we called up the limo company and they actually answered after hours and were at the curb waiting for us within a half of an hour. Needless to say I was thoroughly impressed. The driver was funny and outgoing and took us wherever we wanted to go. I felt like we were living the movie, “The Hangover” for a minute there. That is why I am even giving them a shameless plug in my blog. Anyways, the limo and club hopping experience was incredible and made my trip the most exciting and fun part of the whole visit.
The moral of the story here is this…even though we must all put away childish things eventually and pull our big boy pants all the way up; there is always time to re-charge our batteries and to party like a rock star. Never grow too old and may the music of life always be dancing in your soul. I almost missed out on one of the most memorable times in my life. Just to clarify here, I did have a hangover too, but it was a small price to pay for such extravagance and adventure. I can’t wait to go back and do some more “business” with him again. Lastly, I thought you all might like to know that I did land the account for the business I had in Texas and was able to grin and bare it through the headache and aching body.
As always, stay in touch with me and please comment and share some of your experiences with the rest of us as I have with you today. I am leaving you with this you tube video to remind you visually of the fun you can have in life if you just allow yourself to do that. Even though the video is not an actual limousine but a party bus, you get the point. I did this because the video is from my homeland, Panama! I hope you like it and most importunely, it inspires you to do more and to pamper yourself a little bit more in life. Until then, have a wonderful day and dance the good dance!
