Vacations

As many of you probably noticed this is Wednesday not Monday. Yes I missed my normal Monday post again. This time it was because I went on vacation.

chewie 2In my experience, vacation in American means that you drive ten hours in a car,often with children, to a place you where you spend way too much money. You walk as much in one day as you normally would in two weeks, until your clothes are more sweat than cloth. Then you eat huge rich meals that you wouldn’t normally go near. You buy souvenirs that are three 11406441_10203011304642809_3977214550038472640_ntimes the price you could order them for. Then you return to a bed made of concrete that, by the end of the day, you are convinced is the best thing in existence. You repeat this for a couple of days and call it fun.

This is followed by another ten hour car ride home. Once you reach that blessed place, you unload the car and then stumble for your soft sweet bed. After sleeping twelve hours straight, you get back up to sort the luggage and the house before going back to work that night.

Once upon a time there was a woman who was a writer. She was either cursed or blessed from birth to be so and there was much debate on which it was. One day a very discouraging (and not very original) person told her not to give up her day job. The woman smiled and said that was a wonderful idea. Following the unwittingly clever advice of her critic, the woman found a job working nights, which left her days free to write. Even better, the night job had an unusual schedule which packed two weeks worth of work into one, so the writer was able to have every other week off to sit on her front porch, daydream, and of course write. However, working at night and writing during the day left little time for sleep, so the poor writer occasionally went a little mad, but she decided it was an acceptable price to pay to be able to continue following her curse-blessing. Also she likes tea. :)

  1. Too True. However, I am happy I had the chance to get out and try new things. New experiences to write about and all that. I just wish I had a few days to recover. Hahaha.
