OKAY! ENOUGH, I HAVE TO TAKE A VACAY DAY, A DAY TO NOURISH MY SOUL, CALM DOWN, NURTURE MYSELF. WHAT SHALL I DO WITH THIS FULL GLORIOUS DAY?
WILL I GO TO THE BEACH AND WADE AS FAR OUT AS I CAN WITH MY PANTS ROLLED UP? SHALL I READ THAT BOOK I HAVE BEEN PUTTING OFF? MAYBE I WILL GO TO THAT PARK I LOVE, WHERE I CAN WALK BACK IN THE WOODS SAFELY WITH THE OUTDOOR HIKERS ALL AROUND?
