Yep, the Mister and I are departing this world for the magical land of politcally incorrect rides, cotton-candy princesses and anthropomorphic animals. I mean, really, what better way is there to inaugurate the year of 3’s than spending it in an orgy of rollercoaster-riding, Mickey-stalking-sighting, and general juvenalia?
All of the pieces just fit into place: Mr. X had two free roundtrip tickets on Southwest thanks to all of his travel for work so we are flying for all of $10 (damn you, security fee!). He also has a free car rental weekend, so free car for two days! And, can I tell you what a deal we got on the hotel? It pays to have your birthday land in the off-off season at the Most Magical Place on Earth. It was as if Mickey was saying, “I dare you not to do this!”
I could not say no to the mouse. I could not say no to my overwhelming glee at the idea of Mr. X and I frolicking through Epcot. And, hell, it’s my birthday. I can do whatever I want.
So, as you read this, I am either on the plane already or we have landed in Orlando and are making a beeline for “It’s a Small World”. Either way, we have big plans and typing on a computer for four days is not one of them! Au revoir !
ps: No need to thank me for putting that damn ear bug “When you wish upon a star” in your head. Your look of agony is thanks enough.
