The great Milli Vanilli once said (or rather, lip-synched), “You got to blame it on something…” Since it wasn’t raining this morning, I couldn’t blame my somewhat somber mood on the rain. I will just make my apparent lack of sleep accountable for the feelings of nostalgia which overcame me as I got up at the crack of dawn.
I had a flashback of my childhood. I was specifically taken back to the time when my dad and I would sit together on the living room couch as he flipped through his album of places he’d like to visit. Yes, he made a scrapbook of places overseas which he dreamed of going to. We were strapped for cash back then, so his dreams of overseas travel had to take a backseat. When he wasn’t looking, I used to go through his album of dreams, making a vow to myself to take him to at least one of those places when I grew up.
I believe that now is the time to make his dreams come true. I sought help from an uncle who works at a travel agency, and he suggested that I should get cash advances to pay for our trip expenses. By getting a cash advance, we can go on our trip and pay for it later on. It seemed like a really good idea to me, so I wasted no time in getting that loan.
Next month, my daughter, dad and I will be taking our first trip out of the country. I know it’s going to be a memorable one, and I’m pretty sure we’ll all have a great time. My dad is obviously excited, as he just got a brand new Canon DSLR to use during our trip.
This trip is going to be awesome: I’ll get my much needed respite from work, and I’ll be fulfilling an old man’s dreams…
