OK I'll admit it: I always feel a little left out when I'm home over the winter holiday break. In all the years I've been alive I can't remember more than one or two times I ever went somewhere over this break - and that was to visit my daughter in Pennsylvania. I've never actually been "away" on a vacation over this week, but it always seems that just about everyone else in town is somewhere else!
When I go to the grocery store there is never a line at the check-out. If I were to go into any store I'd get great service because there wouldn't be another shopper in sight. So its a nice time to be around, but the fact of the matter is there's no one else around to do anything with! Everyone is somewhere other than East Hampton unless they're stuck here working. except of course for me.
So I'll spend the week wishing I was somewhere else. I'm thinking Key West would be nice, or Disney World with the kids. I can almost smell the tropical flowers in Hawaii and I know that the Caribbean would be nice and warm. I'm thinking it would be a fun time to fly to New Orleans too. There are so many places to contemplate.
Well, the long vacation week is ahead of us now and I can promise you this: if I should run into you on the street or in the IGA, I'll gladly spend a few minutes chatting. You and I will be among the few people around so we may as well spend some time catching up!
