I opted to take leave today and tomorrow. Since we have Monday and Tuesday off for the 4th of July, it's a six-day weekend for me. Plus, yesterday, I got out of work at 11, which leads to an entire different story.
It all started when Drew called at 11:45 and asked if I'd had lunch. I hadn't, so we had sandwiches at Einstein's. At the end of lunch, Drew asked, "When is it too early to start drinking?" Hence, we were at Rooster's (our second home) by 1 PM. We drank pitcher after pitcher all afternoon and into the evening. It was the earliest I've ever been drunk, and probably the most I've ever had to drink in a single day. Yeah, it's a good thing I didn't have to work today.
So, anyway, this is definitely going to be a party weekend. I'm sure I'll have plenty of stories and pictures. Random days off are the best, and a great way to have some spread out relaxation time before I deploy this fall.
