When It Rains, We Pour

25 Jun

Solving problems while on vacation is so much easier than in real life.  Do you think it is because the pressure is so much less?  There are no career-ending decisions on vacation.  NO having to please an unreasonable boss.  It has been SO damn nice to deal with vacation dilemmas rather than Bad Boss problems….I almost feel like a different person.   I will say I had a nightmare about Bad Boss last night though so my subconscious must be trying to rid itself of that asswipe.

Problem-solving on vacation?

– While at the beach in any coastal town…there is usually a thunderstorm at least once a day.  Hell, just come inside and start the wine.  Hence, when it rains, we pour.

– Family having a squabble?   Go get yourself a cold beer from the fridge, a quiet corner and a good book.

– Sunburn and bug bites got you down?  Go shopping.  New underwear and sandals will make you feel lots better.   If the beach area has a good outlet mall….even better.   You can walk around for hours and forget all time and space.

– You know what else makes Living Dilbert feel better when it rains?  A giant 42″ flat screen television in the bedroom, a ceiling fan and our own bathroom.  Sweet!

– For a last resort when in a moody quandary?   Pastries and coffee.  Vacation is the perfect excuse to eat whatever you want, whenever you want.   Hot damn!

Tomorrow – Holding Off the Inevitable

    That’s how I got through my last vacation!
    It was awesome! (We bought the booze right of the plane at Costco, and they had really good prices on tequila and gin). Every night, I would make cocktails and we’d sit around watching the kids play in the swimming pool (and getting dirty looks from the bartender because we weren’t buying his overpriced watered down drinks).
