You already know what I’m talking about. Co-workers, extended family, small talk; how many times do you think you might get asked this question over November and December? Listen man, if I wanted to talk about where I’m headed, I would bring it up myself. Secondly, what if I don’t want you to know where I’m going? How well do I know you? Again, if I had wanted you to know where I was headed, I would have let you know on my own accord.
Though this is what we think, it is never what we say, and usually we all answer with one of two answers: I’m headed home or I’m staying around here. Well what else did you expect? Yes, I’m going on a backpacking trip through Peru? I implore all of you asking about other people’s holiday plans to stop. We know you don’t actually care. And to you people who have to answer the question? Make it interesting, make something up. When your boss asks, just tell him or her that you’re going to Australian hot springs or camping in the deserts of Pakistan. If we’re lucky, they’ll catch the hint.
