Of Shauna and Unrequited Love

Seen in the elevator at The Cosmopolitan at about 8:30 p.m., September 1st, 2013

The pattern of your pants is as labyrinthine as the path to removing them. You rebuff my every advance, and I've tried just about every route--that of the ardent suitor, that of the comedian, that of the silent admirer. I heard that casinos make their hallways maze-like on purpose. That way the tired and confused and drunk will find themselves back on the casino floor, left with no choice but to lose more money. I suspect that you and the casinos are in cahoots. Soon you'll disappear into the glitter and noise, and I'll have nowhere else to go.

Haven't written a drabble in a while. I need to come up with a more consistent way to write these here. Need to start making regular trips to the strip to jot down character sketches...
