Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

Now that Memorial Day weekend has passed, can we please, please, please agree to abandon the term “Stay-cation”?

The media have grown awfully fond of this term in the last few weeks, as a way to describe people who are putting off vacation plans and staying at home because it’s so ridiculously fucking expensive to go anywhere.

But really, of all the people who didn’t go anywhere, how many of them were like me: Never had any plans to go anywhere in the first place, and just cherished the chance to get a little more sleep?

I don’t know why the term annoys me so, but I feel like spending an extra day sitting on the couch and not getting nearly as much done as I should is not really something that deserves its own dippy term.
