Paid Vacation

I am on vacation. It is a weird feeling to be on paid vacation. I have never had it before and I do not believe my father has ever had a paid vacation in his life. He could get time off, but if he wanted vacation, he would just not go into work and hence not get paid for it.

My mother gets paid vacation days but never uses them. She's constantly at the limit of the maximum number of paid days off. She had to take a sick day off earlier in the month and it was the first time she had called in sick for 15 years.

So, here I am gallavanting off to Colorado and getting paid for it. I am such a slacker.
