Perceptive readers noticed my now-dated comment on my own last post saying that I was taking two weeks off for vacation. And I wasn’t kidding.
I ate … I drank … I was merry. It was fun and relaxing. I didn’t worry about things like work, money, or sanity.
In short, for two weeks I was Paris Hilton.
But that doesn’t mean I’ll spare you my reflections. Among the things I experienced:
The sun. It’s been a very busy spring and summer. I’d spent many, many too few hours outside during the past few months. Thus, I immensely enjoyed renewing my acquaintance with that bright life-giving orb in the sky.
Jellyfish. Lots of jellyfish. Although I’ve seen quite a few beaches over the years, I’ve never seen a beach with so many small translucent jellyfish washing up on the sand. It was odd … perhaps a sign of the apocalypse. Watch out for locusts and/or brimstone.
Cornhole tournament. There we were, minding our own business, and we came across a bar and grill with a huge sign promoting their upcoming “Cornhole Tournament.” Never having heard of such a thing (and only later learning it had to do with kicking a small bean bag around), we considered the myriad unattractive possibilities … and quickly went elsewhere.
Curiosity about my blog readers. What has happened in YOUR life in the past two weeks?
