Did you go on an exotic trip this summer? If so, did you post on your vacation shots on Facebook for all your friends to see? Did you then imagine your co-workers checking their wall during a boring meeting and having to see a shot of you laying out on the beach with a fruity drink in your hand? Were you sure to get a shot of your tanned feet with the emerald seas behind them and the sun setting on the horizon? Did you really capture the essence of that Bahama Mama you were drinking, umbrella and all?
And did you check in at every cool place you visited so that your green-with-envy friends could track your every move?
Well, if you didn’t, then know that I didn’t get to do any of that this summer either. In fact, it was me on the other side of that Facebook wall forced to live vicariously through my friends’ travels as they roamed around the world without a care. Do I begrudge them their exotic travels? Of course not. Am I jealous? Just a little bit.
But not next summer, folks. I have a plan. For even if my lofty goals of having a massive vacation to end all vacations doesn’t pan out, I have a Plan B. And this means my Facebook friends can expect to see this kind of stuff from me next summer.
Status: Bon Voyage, suckers! We’re outta here!
Status: Nothing like an infinity pool with a sit-in bar. Sure beats being in that weekly status call. We are getting a little wrinkly though. BTW, we’re never coming home. Hubby’s going to run a tour boat, and I’m going to learn to braid hair, BAHAHA!
Status: Nothing like a weekend trip to Vegas! We just saw Wayne Newton IN PERSON! Gotta go gamble now. Wish us luck!
Status: Africa is so beautiful this time of year. You guys really need to put this on your bucket list! YOLO!
Status: Can you believe these camels posed for me? I think I’m going to try my hand at professional photography! Should I make this my new cover photo?
Status: Starting to feel like “Where’s Waldo”, haha. Guess where we are now? No time for FB now…gotta go shop. Au revoir!
Status: So glad I got to see the beach one more time this summer! I couldn’t stand the thought of just sitting at home doing nothing.
Status: My husband just won’t smile for pictures. Drives me insane!
And that’s how you get even with the travelling Facebook friends.
