I can’t escape the holidays while in the United States. And while I don’t want to rain on everyone else’s parade (good for them for liking it), I seriously cannot stand Christmas. It might have something to do with the shorter days as well.
So I’ve decided. Next year, I will be getting out of Dodge. I’m traveling to Vietnam and Thailand with my buddy Brian. Instead of sweating it out at the mall while being forced to listen to miserable refrains of angels rejoicing, I will be sipping a Mai Tai on the beach in Phuket.
A note to the curious: this is not one of those “sex tours.” Ugh.
