Real world spring break. As in, an entire week off of work and responsibilities, just like you get when youâ€™re in school. How sweet would that be? I would vote for any presidential candidate who proposes real world spring break as part of his or her platform.
At Girls on the Run, I found out that their spring break is next week (good to know or Iâ€™d show up on Tuesday at an eerily empty school). All the girls had fun plans. Most were going to the local North Carolina beaches or heading to the mountains. I asked them what they would do if they had a million dollars and could go ANYWHERE for spring break. Here are a few of the responses:
A small island where everyone is good at chess so I can play lots of chess
Ethiopia, but I would use my million dollars to buy the people food and shelter
You know where I would go? Thailand. Iâ€™ve always wanted to go to Thailand. Until then, I will just eat lots of Thai food, close my eyes, and pretend that Iâ€™m on a beach in Thailand, not at my desk.
I have been ADDICTED to these â€˜summer rolls.â€™ Itâ€™s rice paper wrapped around carrots, slaw, other crunchy veggies, and fresh basil leaves. I think Iâ€™ve picked up an order of summer rolls four times this week. Weird pregnancy craving.
That being said, I wonder if American Thai food is anything like actual Thai food. Anyone know? I fear itâ€™s a lot like American Mexican food, which I hear mostly isnâ€™t â€˜realâ€™ Mexican food at all.
Side note: The girls did ask me where I was going for my spring break, and I just stared into their sweet, innocent, eight year old eyes and told them the hard, devastating truth: Adults donâ€™t get a spring break. Enjoy it while it lasts, kiddos.
