What Happens During Spring Break Stays During Spreak Break

I am writing to you from a highly classified location. What I can tell you is that I finally paid for a vacation package. I was feeling burnt out,
but I was also inspired by my friend Tony, who recently took a trip to Croatia for some R & R. You can read all about his adventures here. I think it is rather big of me to link to his blog, b/c as you can see he is my literary rival.

Anyway, a few weeks ago, my travel agent narrowed my interest to two sorts of vactions. The first is the well known Hedonism Resorts. You probably have heard what a jolly good time people have at these things, with its espousal of a philophy of gratification. The second option was the lesser known, but still world class, Stoicism Resorts. These sister resorts believe that the key to happiness is not gratification but denial.

In the end, I had to choose the Stoicism package b/c they offer special discounts to writers. Of course that discount didn't apply to me. But they also offer discounts to funambulists, which I did qualify for.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to leaving this week a new outlook on life. If I have time I will update you.

I don’t think it’s ironic when someone’s pants fall down, unless it happens while they’re stealing a belt, or if they've written a book about how to keep your pants up.
