The Awkward Turtle
There were a group of people in the pool playing the band/singer game we played on the hike. This time they picked a letter and each person took a turn naming bands or singers beginning with that letter. If someone could not think of one or repeated one they had to drink. There was a lot of laughter and fun. Ry and I did our part by feeding groups and singers to players when we could!
It wasn't long before security came and told the group to settle down. I have to say I was a bit shocked. There was no swearing or obscene things going on. It was the middle of the afternoon! They were just laughing loudly! Some people just can't stand seeing others have fun! If you wanted peace and quiet you should go hike to Eagle Lake or stay in your room. Hotels are filled with people who make noise!!!
Our last dinner there had an Oriental theme. They had red lanterns and Asian cuisine. I was extremely happy to see sushi. I can't figure out if it is the actual sushi I love or the ginger and wasabi! I just can't get enough of it!! (my mouth is watering just thinking about it!) During dinner they had music and a show. People in dragon costumes came out and performed. It was a great show!
We were to get up at 3 the next morning to go get our flight home so I know Ryan wanted to get to bed at a decent time. (he told me repeatedly that that was the plan) Maybe he forgot he was traveling with me! After dinner we went inside with a group of people and hung out for quite a time! I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants! It is then that I learned of the "Awkward Turtle". I plan to introduce everyone I know to the "Awkward Turtle" and get it started in Michigan as I hear it is already on the streets of Miami!
First, I had no idea until just this moment, when I googled it, that an "Awkward Turtle" really is an actual thing! From the Urban Dictionary: During an awkward moment, this hand gesture is used to mark the situation as awkward, and, depending on the situation, makes it more awkward or clears the air. The awkward turtle is made by putting one hand on top of the other with the thumbs sticking outward and rotating forward. The speed of the rotating thumbs depends on the degree of awkwardness.
During our last night in Tahoe a lot of "Awkward Turtles" came out to play. Many of them actually crashed and burned on the table because things were so awkward
