Day 48 - Vacation

If you are going on vacation, don’t tell people that you’re excited about having three books to read while you’re away. Don’t talk at all. Just go and enjoy the time and space. Reading is fine, but doing it to the extent that it overshadows other experiences is just stoking your ego. Get drunk on the beach and stay hydrated. Have a laugh. Focusing on reading is just a tragedy masked as a special trait. And if you do it, shut up. Just shut the fuck up about it.
