Life Lessons

What did I learn today?

For one, I learned the real reason it's great to eat in restaurants. Spill an entire glass of iced tea? No worries. A crew'll come right by and clean it up while you just sit there with your hands in the air.

I learned that I pass judgement on grown-ups who's dream 2-week honeymoon was spent in Florida at Disney World. Or Land, whichever is in Florida. Grown-ups who don't have kids. Just up & go spend a 2-week honeymoon at Disney. Seriously? It happened to be my new dentist. I wasn't good at concealing my shock and said something along the lines of, "I just don't like kids that much, I was exhausted after listening to 'em in your waiting room!" His new bride apparently is a Disney freak, and he's a newlywed and in that pleasing-pleasing phase of love. At least he took my comment in good stride, because it was really a risky conversation considering he was in the position to poke sharp and jabby things into my soft tissues.

I learned that no matter how much I plan, I still save a lot of shit to do the night before vacation. So I'm out, off to take care of many things laundry-related. I will not be spending my vacation in a kid-zone. I will be drinking frothy drinks with little umbrellas, sand in toes and book in hand. I've got the latest in the Sookie Stackhouse series lined up to go.

Ooh. I am with you on being Judgey McJudgerson re: people who go to Disney for an adult vacation. Seriously? Are you trying to revert to childhood or skip ahead to parenthood? Ever heard of living in the now?

Like I said? Judgey.

Hope you have a wonderful vacation!
