I wanted a vacation.

When you stand in the same spot hour after hour, day after day, month after month, life can get pretty tedious.

I wanted a vacation.


When the kids treat you with disrespect, throwing snowballs at you while you're not looking and laughing maniacally when their projectiles cause the snow to fly everywhere, it's time for a change of pace.

I wanted a vacation.

The worst is when the dogs decide to do their business on your bright red galoshes, and the birds perch on your head, pecking away at your dangling carrot nose.

I wanted a vacation.

But when my flight got diverted to Honolulu, that was simply the last straw.

I think that maby you could have added a little more? I really enjoyed it, especially the bird part.
