It was nice to walk to the Snow Show the second day when it was actually snowing. I think I’m completely acclimated to Denver, though I do miss playing blackjack with friends. And I still get confused when one of the people who works at the convention center says, "How are you today, sir? Have a nice day and enjoy the show." They actually seem to mean it. After so many years in Las Vegas, you can understand why I’d be startled.
Inside the convention center, the thing I heard most often was "I’ve got to leave for ISPO tomorrow." This was typically spoken by somebody with a resigned tone to their voice and slumped shoulders. It often included phrases like "Six shows down, two to go!" or "I don’t remember what my children look like."
