    Something Calvin and his parents can agree upon: all want to believe Calvin was adopted.

    You’d think Calvin would appreciate the summer vacation at least.

    I thought Calvin was bought at Kmart. (as for cruises, I’ve never been on one myself. I mean I was once invited to go on one, but my parents disagreed even though the friends said they’d help pay my way.)

    My dad adored camping so I lived that life. Calvin’s dad isn’t wrong.

    A cruise ship is a hotel you can’t leave, sometimes with a mall. I hate malls, so no thanks.

    What Calvin really wants to know is: can he be returned (like clothing you’d ordered online that didn’t fit) and to where? >8^0

    I read a blurb online where a woman gave birth and insisted the baby wasn’t hers and wanted tests done to prove it. The staff conferred and told her that the tests came back saying that indeed the baby was hers. She accepted that.

    There is a certain logic to that. However, we’ve been on several cruises and I’ll still take that as a vacation.

    I once read about a guy who was on a luxury cruise. He noticed that the staff made a big fuss over an older woman who was also on board. He asked a waiter who she was, whether she was the owner, the captain’s mother or something like that. She wasn’t anyone special like that, but she had been on that ship many times before. She had figured out that it was cheaper to live on a ship with first class service than to live on land in a retirement home, so she decided to spend the rest of her life going from one luxury cruise to another seeing the world, and she had been doing that for many years.

    Roughing it is okay guess. If you have to. …nope. I can’t do it. Give me a hotel and a body of water. When I’m on vacation I want good food, plenty of sunshine, and a bar. And ,for all you hard chargers, I don’t want to carry any of that with me in a pack.

    If he had a little more tact, he would have asked his mother if “Dad” was really his stepfather.

    Actually, Dad is quite a lot like a grown-up Calvin. He’s learned responsibility, but the sense of humor and the mischief are still there.

    So Calvin’s dad fully admits that camping sucks. Guess when they go, he lives in such denial that he thinks it’s pleasant until the last day.

    The final mention of their camping trips, despite the family not going on one last year. I do have to kind of agree with the comparison thing, though when my family and I went on such a luxury cruise in 2008, we had a lot of fun, but it sure felt great to be back home again afterward!

    As a people, we have spent a couple of generations aspiring to foreign vacations. We have expended a great deal of treasure and gotten a pandemic in return. It always seems strange to me that you have to travel thousands of miles to get a “cheap vacation”.

    My idea of camping is having to stay in a two-star hotel. While I’m not rich, I think part of enjoying a vacation is staying in a really nice place, so we budget our trips accordingly.

    One of my favorite vacations was a Lindblad cruise. That said, it is awfully expensive.

    Oddly enough, I almost agree with Calvin’s dad. When I visit foreign nations, I usually think I wouldn’t want to live there, so I appreciate home better. But that doesn’t mean I regret the visits while they’re happening.
