Since everyone, everywhere is on vacation, I think I’ll spend the long weekend visiting your empty homes. I’m going to take showers in your clean, functional bathrooms and relax in your air conditioned living rooms. I’m going to do all my laundry in your dryers that don’t have to run three cycles to dry one load. I’m going to let the children play on your mowed, landscaped lawns and nap on your soft, carpeted floors. No? Then we’ll just stay home and the children will eat popcorn and watch DVDs while I fold laundry before our evening firefly hunt. We’ll go see a small, safe fireworks display on Sunday night and cook hot dogs on the grill. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend everyone.
