    In the aftermath of the recents stabbings on the sidewalk outside Wynn, Millicents posted outside Palazzo, flashing lights unmarked police cars, and two deputies on the Sands Ave. bridge.

    So one night recently at one of the casinos, I played for a while and then went to dinner. I was in a kick ass mood due to having won not just that night but all week, and I was texting a friend as I went up the escalator. When I got to the top I paused, distracted, looking at my phone and actually came to a standstill at the top of the escalator – completely off the escalator but just a couple of steps forward of it. Anyway, this couple came up behind me I guess, got off the escalator and I imagine I was somewhat blocking them. It was this skinny medium height black guy with this dumpy looking white girl. He actually pushed me, open palm flat on my back against my coat!

    Not hard or anything, but I felt it. Didn't jar me whatsoever, but it wasn't a soft tap either, it was a push. I was in a such a good mood though that when I turned around I just looked him over and starting laughing at him, which confused him and he didn’t know what to say. I just waved my arm at him dismissively, and smiled from ear to ear, and said, "Sorry, I’m just a little distracted," and walked away. He was saying something about, “You don’t just STAND at the top of an escalator,” but I wasn’t listening. I didn’t want to interrupt my positive energy flow with any negativity.

    So, what ya’ think? Part of me is wishing I’d reacted more harshly to his daring to touch me, but then at the same time, I maintained my positivity, ate dinner, forgot all about it, and kept winning at the tables after dinner too. I think if I had reacted any other way, it might’ve put a damper on the night. And the casino where this happened is known for incidents between customers on drunken weekends.
