Making sure that the terms 'fun' and 'dysfunctional' are never more than a summer vacation apart
When we were kids, summer vacations meant a road trip to somewhere. Part of the excitement was because the trips somehow invariably began the day before school had actually given out. I always assumed it was because my parents wanted to squeeze some extra days into our trip, but I realise now it was probably them trying to slyly take off before we got home from school. Because there’s nothing more wonderful than a summer vacation with your family; unless it is coming back home from the same vacation, happy in the knowledge that you don’t have to do it again till the next year.
