All I Have To Do is Dream

13Jul12

A dream vacation. Boy does that sound good about now. It’s been one of those weeks where you just feel like packing everything up and disappearing for a while, which makes yesterday’s question so appropriate. It was:

What is you dream vacation?

Many people choose something exotic, with lots of sun and sand. Places like Hawaii, Fiji, Bora Bora and the like come up as a dream place to go. It’s not that I wouldn’t enjoy it there. I am sure it’s very beautiful and peaceful. The thing is I am not that big of a hot sun person. I never really have been. I don’t think it would be the dream vacation for me. Although I think one of my dream vacations would be to cruise on a smaller boat, One that only holds a few people besides the crew. They can cater to your every whim, right down to the menu for the whole trip and what beverages to have on board. I would like to do something like that in a warm climate, but I would rather spend most of the time relaxing at sea and then maybe dock for a day or two someplace remote, not touristy, so we could relax in a small beach house and be waited on hand and foot. Maybe there would be a nice hammock swinging between some trees on the beach. We could lay outside, do some reading, some fishing, and take a swim when we wanted to and then it would be back to the ship for some more cruising around. I’ve had the opportunity to cruise before on the large ships. We have gone to Bermuda several times and it is very beautiful, but I think this type of trip would be wonderful.

Another dream vacation of mine has always been to go to Ireland. While Michelle and I will get to go this September, although this trip is strictly in Dublin thanks to Guinness. I would love to be able to do a longer trip to Ireland where we could spend some time in the countryside staying in local towns and just enjoying the atmosphere. There is so much history there and so many things to see that if it were a dream vacation I know I would want to take a month or so and just take my time working around the country so I could see as much as possible. I’ll certainly be happy with the reality of the four days we will get this year though 🙂

Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer the question and a special thanks to Mariano Rivera for answering me on Twitter. Let’s move on to a new question for today. Since today is Friday the 13th, I think this is a good one to try for today:

Tell me the one superstition you have heard or practiced the most in your lifetime.

We’ve all heard things going back to when we were kids about things that will bring bad luck or doing certain things that will help bring good luck, like only picking up a penny when it is heads up. My grandmother was chock full of all these superstitions and used to mention different ones to us all the time when I was a child. I am sure you’re family was the same way, so is there one that stands out in your memory? Is there one that you practice yourself, even though you know there may be no rationality behind it? Think about it and let me know. You can answer on here, or on Facebook or on Twitter. I’ll also ask a few people on Twitter and see how they reply. I’ll post my answer tomorrow.

That’s it for now. I know I have been saying for days I am going to post more of my story, but every afternoon lately seems to produce some articles that need to be written so I haven’t had free time to do it yet. I hope to get to it tonight, so until then, enjoy the rest of your day and don’t forget to do something creative today!

    @IguanaFlats whenever a pitcher wanted new ball- I would never watch him toss it to catcher. Not even if I’m just watching on tv.
