It's time that shed some little on a secret that parents have held dear for quite some time. Hopefully my fellow parents won't turn on me for leaking this little bit of parenting bliss, but I'm willing to risk it.
Have you ever had a colleague who has kids? Have then often thrown around suspicious excuses for leaving early, like "my kid is sick." or "daycare has asked me to pick up my listless, vomiting child."? Yeah, right (wink, wink). Of course I don't get these questions because I can show passing interest in my child and be Daddy of the Year, but these ladies are always coming up with excuses to cut out early. Sounds sketchy, no? At least @KanneDo's coworkers are on to this ruse:
Oooo, busted. I feel like I should share with everyone what parents really do when we use such thinly veiled excuses to play hooky. We vacation at a beautiful get away called Cabo San Pukas. The beauty of this unique destination is that you don't even have to leave your very own home. In fact, you can't.
Even the best day at work doesn't compare to a vacation at Cabo San Pukas, where the vomit flows like wine and the party lasts alllllll night.
Other benefits include:
- A highly qualified staff of one, sometimes two.
- More wardrobe changes than a Lady Gaga concert.
- The added bonus of joining in the vomit party when the right bug hits.
- Watching cartoons!
- A chance to visit the doctor's office!
Aaawwwwwwww yeeeaaaah! So next time your coworker looks like they haven't slept in days, still has vomit on their leg and tells you they need to go home early, give them a knowing wink. Cause' you know what's goin on - it's party time at Cabo San Pukas! Be jealous. They have an excuse you just can't take advantage of to live the high life.
