‘Like a pro:’ you mean that I have to get a job there?
When I go on vacation, I want to rest. And one of the things that I most need to rest from is the necessity of planning my activities. Making ‘a game plan to cover more ground’ sounds suspiciously like work.
Is part of our problem that we’ve turned work into play and play into work?
The item on the right is also interesting. I had to clip it to fit on this page, but the text of the message is as follows:
My four children and I are huge Disney fans and travel to Orlando at least twice a year to get our Disney “fix.” For each of my children’s sixteenth birthdays, I take them to a destination of their choice for some special one-on-one time with Mom. They can choose anywhere in the world….
I have to wonder:
- Where is Dad in this? I suppose he has to stay at home and work to pay for the twice-a-year trips: Disney World is not cheap.
- Is he OK that his wife and children are addicts who need a ‘fix’?
- If my mother had suggested, when I was turning 16, that I go on a vacation with her ‘for some special one-on-one time with Mom,’ I would have been seriously creeped out. What sort of family is this? (Or are all her children girls?)
Also from the mailbox:
So they want people from New York to campaign, not in New York, but in Pennsylvania. Apparently it’s a foregone conclusion that New York will vote for Obama.
I already know that I’ll be out of town on Election Day, and will have to request an absentee ballot in order to vote. I don’t like either of the candidates, but I find Romney slightly less horrid. I’d make the effort to vote for him if I were in town. But given the circumstances, is it worth the bother?
