It’s that glorious time of year when the lucky get to flee the enduring Midwestern winter and get away during the spring holiday break. There are many reasons keeping you from going...maybe you can’t afford to miss work, or didn't get that tax return cash yet, or maybe you just could not go...so you process through the 5 stages of denial that you are not going anywhere.
The friend circle I have surrounded (found) myself in has a couple of defining characteristics, the most generous being humor.
Other great characteristics include being loving and kind, honesty, good listening skills, spontaneous nature and lastly ownership of a boat or beach home (just kidding, kinda)...all good characteristics....but humor is at the forefront....

Here are a couple of stories to share and giggle at.
