Night in Vegas

My body aches from too much walking, so my husband and son go downstairs for dinner and gambling without me. I decide a hot bath might help my pain. The marble floor and vanity top glisten in a bathroom larger than any room in my home, and I step into the Jacuzzi big enough for four people. Then I settle on the bed with gold-trimmed pillows, and pick up the thriller, Girl with a Dragon Tattoo.
