After reading a comment from sweet Don, it set my mind off on a tangent. (This is always the case when you’re red on the head with blond roots.) Anyhow, we were chatting about Cookie Monster, er, Michelle Obama, and it got me to thinking of the FLOTUS’s and POTUS’s separate vacations.
Apparently, Obama played golf with Tiger in south FL, and Michelle and the girls went out west to ski. Obviously, the folks that paid for these weekend-jaunt “vacations” also fund the real Cookie Monster.
Oddly enough, what struck me about this story was not that we’re funding it, (that’s a given) but that a family was taking separate vacations (on someone else’s dime, nonetheless.)
Maybe I’m a freak of nature, but I’ve not vacationed without my family. Don’t get me wrong; I have sung at weddings out of town on my own. I have dealt with work out of town on my own. Admittedly, I have skipped out on weekend jaunts with the boys (primarily because roller coasters and heights are not my cup of tea,) but I didn’t go do my own thang on the side…….unless Marco was in town…..
Just out of curiosity……Do you take separate vacations?
