Every week we record a new episode of “Pawn Stars” on our DVR. It is a television reality show based on a pawn shop located in the less traveled part of the Las Vegas Strip. The owners and employees are interesting characters and the people selling stuff to the shop are often entertaining, too.
We decided the store would not be busy early in the day on a Monday; and we could catch a glimpse of Rick, the Old Man, Corey and Chumlee. We were wrong. At 9 a.m. the store had a line out the door waiting to get in. Like all the other tourists, we parked the truck and stood in line.
After 15 minutes, we looked at each other meaningfully…
“Are we seriously standing in line to get into a pawn shop?", Mike asks.
Without saying a word, we just start walking to the truck. We get in the truck and start laughing.
What a couple of goofballs. The magic of television can put stars in your eyes sometimes. Pawn Stars.
