I have copyedited signs, menus, and (most egregious) a Ford commercial (where they used “further” when they really meant “farther”).
There have been goofy cruiser bicycles, boardwalks, and bikinis (worn by other people).
I thought there would be some writing happening during this vacation, but that was merely wishful thinking. My brain turns right off during family time, and instead I watch the triplets and observe how three eight-year-olds exhibit a bunch of traits I have noticed in DP, only without the veneer of consideration and self-awareness.
I am so glad I’m no longer a kid. Sure you don’t have to pay bills, but can you imagine not being able to get food for yourself or control anything about your daily life?
What do you learn when you take time off?
