As If I Needed a Reason to Make Travel Plans

Coworker 1: When I travel, I have to worry about what my husband wants to do. Sometimes it gets really irritating. And we always have to discuss how the money's being spent.

Coworker 2: Well, I don't have to worry about what my husband wants to do, but I have the kids and they take all the money anyway, so we don't get to do much.

Me: ...

Coworker 1: You, you don't have to worry about either, do you?

Me: No, I don't.

Coworker 2: You get to do everything you want without worrying about your husband, your kids or money. What is that like?

Me: It's pretty great, I guess.

Coworker 1: You need to travel even more than you already do. Take advantage.

Me: I agree.

Coworker 1: Yeah, now, while you don't have to worry about any of the three!

Coworker 2: Yeah, now, while you have the dream trip trifecta!

LOL - the weather has got to be reason #4 to travel - but like you insinuate - you never need a reason to travel - unless you want an excuse to complain with your co-workers . . .

Life has nice ways of reminding you. Take advantage now, because one day you will not be and you will want to know it was used to its fullest

*arms crossed*

I've spent enough time without a husband and children to have adequately enjoyed that freedom.

I'd like a ball and chain please. ;)

Yikes! Anonymous is giving you plenty of alternatives to traveling. I like finding excuses to travel and yes it is nice not to have to fuss over other's 'needs'. Just you, your carry on and a camera. Travel safe!

Heh Heh. Yeah. We're in the same wondrous boat.

I was just saying to my own co-worker the other day: I would stay home more if there was a big man there to give me a massage!

And he said: Don't worry, once you get a partner there's plenty of years of disappointment in front of you.
