Vacation time!

I am leaving tomorrow for a much-needed vacation! Yay! We'll be cruising the Mexican Riviera, hopefully avoiding drug cartels, kidnappers and pirates. I figure it's worth the risk. Cruises are the best form of stress relief in the world.

Want some scientific proof? Here is your brain after a stressful day:

And here is your brain after just one day of cruising:

Of course, if you just can't take a cruise right now, there are other solutions for your stress. You could buy a stress banana:

Instructions: "Squeeze me! To relief Stress! You will never have made fun getting rid of stress."
(I think this may be a foreign-made product. Still, it might be worth a try.)

Or I could pick up some Mexican pharmaceutical solutions for you. (The little green bottle is "Night Cap Liquid Extract." Anybody wanna guess what the number 1 ingredient might be?)

Or - you could simply meditate on the fact that even though your life is stressful and your job sucks, it could always be worse. After all, you could be this guy:

Hasta la vista! Have a wonderful week.

Hope you have a terrific vacation!! Mexico is one of my favorite vacation spots...we have gone there 7 or 8 times....the Mexican Riveria area (south of Cancun) is being more and more developed with some beautiful all-inclusive resorts. The price is right and the weather is always warm and balmy this time of year. Enjoy and have a Pina Colada for me!

Thanks Retired One! I am super excited. We've done Caribbean cruises before, but not Mexico. I'm looking forward to seeing some new sights. And I'll be happy to have a Pina Colada in your honor!
