Seymour Toze and Lady Lynda peruse the internet travel sites for
the cheapest deal for their vacation motel. They search
several money saving web sites for motels They
carefully scrutinize several choices and decide on the Showbiz
hotel in Atlantic City. They like that the
place includes an olympic sized pool on the highest
floor, the 20th floor. The couple are pleased the perks
were air conditioning, short walk to the
shore, private balcony, a mini
refrigerator, a safe for their valuables, maid
service , a wide screen television, a view of the
ocean, rooms for non smokers and especially queen size
bed The twosome hugged each with glee when they
discovered everything including breakfast was for less then
“Oh wow it sounds lovely. So glad there’s air
conditioning. It can get quite humid in the summertime in
that shore town. A cozy beach. What do they mean?
inquired Lady Lynda quite intrigued. Seymour replied I don’t
now but I’d sure like to find out. I suppose we can ask
about that when we dial the motel. That’s easy enough to
find out I know we’ll both treasure our visit to the
Lady Lynda and her mate enter the lobby of the Showbiz hotel for
the staff to check their bags. They are exhausted and
ready for a good night sleep on the firm mattresses on their queen
sized bed. They both hug each and plop into bed. They
embrace each other with utter joy feeling crazy in
love. They are fully dressed …..so
far. ” We really were lucky finding such a
terrific bargain” exclaimed Seymour. “Yes that’s
one good thing about the reopening of the US from the
lockdown. I believe with my heart the states
should do their utmost to do it safely. Including
here. But oh do I love this fabulous bargain.
Ordinarily this motel would cost close to one hundred dollars and
we get it for sixty nine dollars. I’m so glad we chose
AC. Now when we wake up tomorrow we’ll be eating the
breakfasts I put in the fridge. Plus the sugar free
sweet tea. Then its heading on out to the “Ripley’s Believe
it or not” Museum. Next we’ll tour “Lucy the
Elephant hotel” enthused Toze.. Oh that would so entertaining
Seymour commented. Oh I’m looking forward to tomorow.
The next day the twosome explores what adventures they’ll
experience on the famous boardwalk.
Some time in the foreseeable future.
Lady Lynda and her sweetums plan for a well deserved and much
needed vacation now that the coronavirus restrictions eased up
enough. The days swiftly go by as they count the days to
their respite as they combat cabin fever. The two choices are
narrowed down to Bridgeport CT and Atlantic City NJ. Lady Lynda
beams as she tells her mate Bridgeport is her mother’s birthplace
and its the home of the P.T. Barnum museum. She excitedly continues
to explain the museum reminds her of her dear freaks. “Can you
imagine the tragedy of suffering from a deviated septum? Oh the
horror!!! Or being from Texas with an accept where nobody can
make out what you’re saying? Oh the tragic case of being tone deaf
and not realizing it ” she exclaimed wearily wiping her brow.
“Seymour mon amore. Oh how clever of me. My
little bonmot Seymour my amore and it rhyme. Mr
Toze smiled wanly. as he pensively listened to his wife. “Oh Lady
Lynda my paramour, my amore. His wife grinned
happily. Seymour replied I feel I’m between two major
worlds. I understand you choosing Bridgeport. I’m leaning
toward Atlantic City NJ. There’s the beach, the delightful water I
love being wet especially with the waves splashing upon my hot
body. I’m sure you like me listen intently to what Dr. Anthony
Fauci says and Dr. Birx too. Oh I love her colorful scarves. I am
so glad they gave the go ahead. Heaven forbid we spread the virus
to others. I know you and I will wear our masks and social
distance.,..except for each other when we’re out.
I feel torn. “I know the feeling Lady Lynda so
do I replied Seymour Toze.
The two turn on the local news to eagerly check out
the latest COVID-19 news. They immediately notice every state is in
the yellow stage. Their choices are narrowed down to Bridgeport CT
and Atlantic City NJ. Seymour’s wife chose Bridgeport CT. Lady
Lynda gushes with excitement as mentioned There in Bridgeport you
can see a lifesize statue of Charles Stratton. Much better knownfor
his stage name Tom Thumb. “Oh Lady Lynda Mr Barnum was a fraud. His
earliest exhibit was an old shriveled black woman who he claimed
was Pres. George Washington’s babysitter. How can you praise such a
scalywag. Besides my pick Atlantic City features a branch of
“Ripley’s Believe it not Museum” It even features a life size
statue of the world’s tallest man “Robert Wadlow” at a fraction of
an inch under nine feet tall. There’s lots to do too. he enthused.
“What is there to do in Bridgeport CT except for the PT Barnum
museum. A sightseeing site of a major huckster Seymour sneered.
Lady Lynda delicately, ever so properly wiped a single tear that
wafted from her marble blue eye. “How dare you Seymour Bridgeport
happens to be the birthplace of my dear sweet mother.” Seymour Toze
tensed as he was taken by surprise. “Oh dearest dear I by no means
meant to insult your female parent. My point is there’s so much
more to in AC. There’s lots to do besides that immoral pastime
gambling. There of course is the beach. We can collect seashells.
We can put our toesies in the ocean water” “Oh what a connumdrum”
sighed Lady Lynda. Mother’s hometown, PT Barnum vs AC boardwalk,
Ripley’s the Beach. The beach did seem tempting. “Now that you
mentioned the ocean and beach Atlantic City NJ does sound rather
delightful. AC for us.
