This morning Yahoo! Travel kindly informed me that I can fly from Newark to Honolulu for approximately $420 (includes taxes/charges, etc.). And what’s better – I can pick from dates as far ahead as January 2004! I excitedly call Denis, who quickly points out he’d rather go to New Orleans ten more times before heading back to Hawaii for another sunny vacation.
Dejected, I quickly email my sister, who I know is itching to go on vacation, and OFFER TO PAY HER AIRFARE if she wants to go to Hawaii in November before Thanksgiving. She turns me down. SHE TURNS ME DOWN, PEOPLE!
Now I’m just sad. No one will go to Hawaii for dirt cheap with me. So I tell Mare-Bear about the airfare, and within 30 minutes she’s booked with her boyfriend for two weeks in late September. And Hot New Admin is not far behind – calling her own boyfriend to see if he wants to go.
WHAT ABOUT ME????
