She called to say that she couldn't go on her vacation with my Uncle, his wife, and my grandfather. Instead she wanted to attend the memorial service of a friend who recently passed away. She wanted to know if I would go on vacation for her?
All expenses paid? Sure! Time to brag via status update!
She calls back. "The airline won't let me transfer the plane ticket to you"...Let down! Airlines are so lame. She paid an extra $65 for the tickets to be "transferable" yet if you change plane times, the charge you the difference in price, and you can't actually transfer them to another person.
"Well, lets just get you another plane ticket, I really want you to come"... Okay. I am not going to pass up an all expenses paid trip. Even if it is with family. Fortunately not only do I love my family, but I actually like them as people too.
St. Maarten here I come. Second book in the Stieg Larsson trilogy packed along with my running shoes and swimsuit. I am ready for the vacation I don't really need! Or maybe I do?
Goodbye cold weather, I'll see you again soon.
