Podunk Meets Paradise

Vacation Time

Usually I believe in losing the watch when on vacation. But the usually laid back region of the Yucatan Peninsula is throwing a curve ball at my non-routine.

As background, Big L and the Notorious Babs enticed my family to Mexico by luring, would you like to go to Mexico? Instead of going to school and work in the northern part of North America, not including Canada?

We are here with my brother Skeeter and his wife the Truly Nice Human, our kids, their kids, and no dogs.

Today, we’ve been faced with the dilemma of a happy hour that started at 2 on the Mexican time zone at a place called xpuha. Aside from the fact that this beach sounds like a really productive cough, it has the advantage of being on the Caribbean Sea and having a happy hour that starts at 2.

And the bar has swings.

But then we had to rush back to our casa because our main beach bar’s happy hour starts at 5. That bar has swings too. This is totally counter posing my August trip to the accidental Betty Ford Clinic.

Airplane Reading

The Podunks are traveling to Mexico and when I’m flying, I like to read something more sophisticated than our local newspaper, or as Iron Chef refers to it — the weekly disappointment.

I picked up a copy of the Harvard Business Review to broaden my horizons.

The smarty pants at the Harvard Business Review taught me an extremely valuable lesson before I even made it to the Table of Contents. Namely, it is possible for a magazine to cost $16.95. WTF HBR!
I wasn’t hiring you to write a college essay for me.

I was hoping to gain some 30,000 ft insight into the world of the wheeler dealers. Lesson learned, HBR. Financial wizards check out the price tag.
