Really I would like my comment box fill up with answers.
Two households had this conversation, about vacations...
We all know that when you leave your job for 4 to 14 days
it is a vacation.. that is not the question.
The question came in another form.
So... first scene is... you go away for 4 days.. to see
a relative. You drive for at least 4 hours.. visit and come
back 4 days later.
Second scene... You drive to a relatives house for 4 hours.
you visit for 2 days, then leave that relative's house, and
drive another 2 hours.. and visit that relative for a day or 2.
Then leave that house, go across town and visit another
relative for a day or 2. Then once again you are on the road
for another 4 hours to visit another relative, for a day or 2.
Leaving that relative, drive 3 hours, and spend a day or 2 and
then head home ......driving 4 more hours. You have been
gone 10 days or so. Vacation?
And lastly.... you drive for 4 to 6 hours.. You arrive at a hotel,
or rented house.. You spent 4 or 5 days there. Visiting the sights,
laying on the beach. Going fishing on a charter boat.. what ever
pleases the two of you.. And then after those days you drive back
the 4 to 6 hours back home. Vacation?
Well according to the males they are all vacations.. And to the
females.... only the last one is a vacation... the other two are
This isn't to say, that the first two are not enjoyable. They are.
Busy, and fast, but enjoyable.. but just not a vacation.
The last one is a not scheduled out, laid out, but play it by ear..
vacation... Even you come across one of those relatives during
the time, it is still a vacation.
So here you go readers, tell me.. what is a vacation, to you?
are we females nick picking? I honestly want to know.
REMEMBER this is not about which one is enjoyable. as they
both are enjoyable... just one is more laid back, and maybe a
tat more enjoyable as there is no responsibility to it.
