Having had a two week period where I put in about 76 hours by the end of the day on Thursday, I talked to my boss about whether she’d mind if I just took the other half of the day off tomorrow and she said to go for it.
So I am lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend yawn before me.
I hope to waste it entirely.
I imagine that the topic of whether we want to go to the State Fair might come up? I might want to visit, and walk around the pavilions, and get some of that lemonade, and complain about how the “modern art” this year isn’t as good as the “modern art” in the mid-oughts (and, lemme tell ya, the stuff in the mid-oughts paled in comparison to what they had in the 90’s).
But I might be told “Eh. We’ll go next year. Get some of the Newman’s Own Lemonade and put some maraschino cherries in it and pretend you paid 5 bucks for a big glass of that instead.”
So… what’s on your docket?
