As many of you know, Sara and I reside in two different yet equally glamorous cities: respectively, Boston and Chicago. The climates in these cities can only be described as paradisical. I’ve heard this from several tourists hailing from Duluth, Minnesota and Barrow, Alaska. What's up, Arctic Circle?
Boston is having a record ski and sledding season. Having already received 55” of snow this winter, mostly in the past 3 weeks, the skies are now vomiting another 18” – 24” on Boston. Sara is undeniably thrilled. Trapped in her 2 bedroom apartment with a 3 year old and an 11 month old that is currently learning to walk/play with knives, her productivity is going through the roof. She is coping primarily by drinking and crying.
Chicago is faring much better. Here we merely dabble in sub-zero temperatures and have only had one major blizzard. I am currently being punched in the face with handfuls of gravel by a sinus infection and am chasing a 10 month old who is very possibly on methamphetamines. Oh, to have his energy. Also, who is dealing drugs to my 10 month old and why does he not share in the bounty?
What I’m getting at in my usual long-winded-not-dramatic-at-all way is this: GILD & WIT NEEDS A VACATION. But we’re not getting one. So instead we’re going to dream about vacation. This will not be a long weekend at the Ft. Lauderdale Comfort Inn. Our dream involves a lengthy plane ride, clearly in first class. There will be champagne. And then, when we arrive at our exotic tropical destination, at which we will will stay for a minimum of one week, there will be inviting lounge chairs alongside multiple water features. Gorgeous flowers everywhere and no mosquitos. There will be SPF 70 and people whose job it is to spritz you with misters, give you massages and tell you that you look even more beautiful without makeup. This vacation is going to be amazing.
Would you like to come with us? It’s completely free. Make-believe vacations are among the many complementary services offered by Gild & Wit. Come dream and weep with us.
