Finally forced to use some of his accumulated vacation time, Cash figured the only way he could travel and still maintain control of everything back at the office was to fake the whole trip.
     By day he would work through his in-box, while each evening carefully researching the next leg of his journey and posting the information (complete with photos) to his personal blog.
     And it would’ve worked, too, had his girlfriend not caught a glimpse of him downtown; but by then he had already been halfway around the world and could always dine out on the stories he’d tell.


  1. Never underestimate a smart girlfriend ;-)

  2. Hilarious...yet so sad! Control can take all the fun out of life.

  7. I'll take a real vacation over a virtual one any day.
    Love your story line and the creative bent to it.

  8. You need to get on a jet plane right now and take a real Vacation.

  9. Retired a year ago and not very good at financial planning, so virtual vacations sound like a pretty good idea to me. Thanks for the smile :)

  10. Virtual vacation is all I can afford right now lol.

    V is for V...

  11. The words "vacation" and "control" don't belong in the same sentence, as you so wittily pointed out in this writing! Peace, Amy
