I have a little green monster on my shoulder this summer and I have decided the best way to exorcise it is to write about it, so here goes. To all of you who are taking vacations, traveling and seeing foreign places or domestic……I hate you! I hate you!
Well now that I have said it I feel better, lighter, unburdened…… not really but at least you know how I feel. I needed a vacation this year and I did not realize how much until I had to admit we wouldn’t be taking one. It’s the economy and we have been hit pretty hard so not this year and probably not next year either. Now every time I read a blog it is about the family vacation and how much fun they are having (pooh on you) sometimes they are taking more than one (greedy). Even some of my own family is having the time of their lives traveling. Would it be wrong to wish rain storms or locust on you all.
You see this was the year I was suppose to go to Scotland. I have waited my whole life to make this trip but now it is indefinitely on hold. I was to spend 14 wonderful days in Scotland and Ireland with maybe a side trip into Paris or Italy. So you have to understand and forgive me dear people for wishing you ill but I just can’t get this green eyed monster off my shoulder. That’s why I don’t really hate you or want you to have bad weather to ruin you vacation, although locust would be good okay, interesting, it is the monster speaking, whispering in my ear such bad things. Instead you go to your exotic locals or Disney World and have the best times of your lives just to spite me and keep posting pictures and videos and blogging about all the places you have been, laugh at me, ha! ha! ha! Maybe that will cause the envious creature to shrivel up and die a horrid death. A little harsh but it’s the only way I think. So the next time you are riding in a gondola or falling down Splash Mountain, remember me and tell yourself it’s for Robin, I’m doing it for her………. Die! Green Monster Die!
