The way we roll

Hi. Around this neck of the woods, today marks the first day of Spring Break. Blogger World, Happy Freakin' Spring Break! I hate Spring Break. I hate it along with Summer Break. Since I no longer receive a Spring Break or Summer Break, I basically loathe any adult that receives these made up holidays. What? No, I'm not jealous some people receive a week off work for no reason. No. Seriously, I'm not jealous. Anyway, enough Debbie Downer...moving on to the real post.

One cold day in February I was looking at ariplane tickets, dreaming how great it would be to go on a trip. Southwest Airlines was having a killer sale to/from the following cities: Houston, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis. I mean these tickets were dirt cheap, $39.
While dreaming of a nice weekend vacation the telephone inturrupted my thoughts. The following conversation took place one cold day in February.

Sister #1: What are you doing?
Me: Looking at cheap tickets.
Sister #1: Where are you thinking of going?
Me: Maybe St. Louis, so I can go shop at H&M
Sister #1: Oh, why don't we get tickets? It can be your birthday present. We could go for the day.
Me: OK
Sister #1: It looks like Tuesday, March 16 works for the cheap tickets.
Me: OK (getting more excited)
Sister #1: Now, this is your birthday present from me. You will not get anything else. Are you ok with that?
Me: YES
Sister #1: Alright, we're book for Tuesday, March 16th. We fly out at 6:30am and fly home at 8:30pm. Is that enough H&M shopping for you?
Me: YES!

Tomorrow, Sister #1, my mom, and myself are taking a day trip to St. Louis. The day will be full of shopping, eating, and more shopping. So, how is that for spontaneity?

You're...flying...to St. Louis...so you can shop at H&M?

I know my wife was all squealing fan girly when the local Mall proudly proclaimed they they were getting an H&M, then was really bummed when they didn't have anywhere near the selections she knew the east coast H&M stores had, but...you're...flying to St. Louis to go shopping?

Actually if I translate this into local (Aussie) terms, it's not much different from when I used to catch the train into Melbourne, Vic. for the day. Being that I could get a Student discount on the already heavily discounted "Off Peak Super Saver" fare, I could go down and back for around $10 (but that was over 20 years ago).

And what did I do in Melbourne?

Visited numerous comic books stores and game stores ;)

Yeah, men and women aren't that different.

Cap'n John- I plan to take my mom and Sister #1 to the Arch. They have never been to St. Louis. I guess we are doing something besides shopping. HA!

Renee- Thanks!

Yay for spontaneity! Can't wait to see the update on what you did, what you saw, what you ate, and what you bought! (in order of reverse importance)

PS: When I come to OKC for FUN, you will be the first to know! Driving all the way to Mustang, USA is fun and all, but doesn't allow for much flexibility when I am sitting in boring meetings all day! :)

That's awesome! What a coincidence. Do you know lots of people who work for a particular publishing dynasty there? That's where I work!
