Playing Hooky

Did you know that Vanna White and Pat Sajack work about 37 days a year???  I couldn't believe my ears when I heard that recently.  So, in light of that, I say it is your inalienable right to take an unscheduled day off once in a while.
First, make sure it is a nice day.  Sunny and no clouds except some of those pretty white ones that look like they're edible.
Then, pick something relaxing.  Go for a hike if you like that kind of thing.  Go out to eat so you don't have to cook.  Find and outdoor space and just sit and enjoy it...with a loved one.  Maybe share a bottle of wine or possibly, two.
Don't take the freeway.  Take the slow route where there are homes to gawk at and little stores and places you can't see from the freeway.
Put your pajamas on early.  Watch the television if you like and catch up on all those shows you've recorded.  Or rent a movie.   Eat popcorn and drink more wine if you want.  Just don't overdo it on the wine because you do have to go to work in the morning.
Probably, Pat and Vanna do that the other 328 days of the year.  I mean, do what they want...nobody could drink that much wine and keep their girlish(or boyish) figure!

Oh, and whatever you decide to do--drive the opposite way of your workplace.  Part of the fun of an unscheduled day off is not getting caught!
