The worst of all vacation days is one where you have to make a cameo at work. I have to go in and write the schedule for the inventory associates, I tried to do it last Friday but ran out of time and will power. So now I have to trudge up there and do it, in the dead center of my time away. The Cubs are playing a throw back game from 1948, they will be wearing uniforms and broadcasting the first two innings in black & white with only one or two camera angles. Even the announcers will be dressed in era-appropriate garb. On my list below of things I wanted to do, I have accomplished all but the "ride my bike a lot" and "read the new David Sedaris book." So, after the Cubs game I will ride my bike to Northwestern's island in the lake and sit down and read a few chapters. Retirement is still scary, but I can see how appealing it can be to some.
