Today I start a brief (five days) vacation in which I'm mostly sticking around the Home Unit, although The Wife and I are going on an overnighter/day trip Friday and Saturday. I've always liked these kinds of vacations; there's a lot to be said for just being off work, without all the rigmarole of traveling to a destination and doing travelly stuff. I've been indulging these kinds of vacations for years...but now they're calling them "staycations".
So, the Random Wednesday Conversation Starter is simply this: Is "staycation" a dumb word, or what?!
