I think this fits the definition of irony. I had intended/scheduled Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th as vacation days, as I hoped we could take a 4-day weekend trip via train to Boston. The schedule/logistics/cost didn’t quite work, so we cancelled the trip, but I decided in the end to keep the vacation days for myself. Hey, everyone loves a 4-day weekend.
On Monday, I decided to cancel the Thursday vacation day, as I thought I might as well try to catch up on some work. Vacations are nice, but if you feel like you’re behind, how can you relax?
Tuesday, I got the call to pick up my daughter, as she was running a fever. My wife stayed home to take care of her Wednesday. Josh has been complaining of a sore throat for a while now, and not much of an appetite, so we decided that I should stay home today using a sick day, and take them both to the doctor.
So, that original vacation day traveling to Boston in the end turned into a sick day tending a sick child. What do you think? Irony?
Edit: Added two pics of lunch with the munchkins. We were waiting for Lily’s prescription of antibiotics to be filled, so we had lunch at Taco Bell. That’s right, I spared no expense.
