The 12th Day of Christmas - Travel Version

The final day, and lover boy pulls out his big finale...Twelve drummers drumming. Are you kidding me? Dude, I take it you've thrown in the towel on this relationship, because the one thing you don't want to do is leave your beloved in a room full of musicians. I mean, I know they're drummers and all. It's not like you brought her a dozen guitarists-guitaring or lead singers-singing, but even the drummers get to lay claim to a little bit of that rock star charisma. Essentially what you've done is put the lady you're trying to gain favor with in a position where she's going to be hit on multiple times each day, and don't even get me started on what you've done to the poor dancers dancing or the maids-a-milking. All you've accomplished with this gift is make your life harder, as it's hard to resist a guy with a drum kit.

How do you think I got Lori's attention?

I'm not crazy enough to leave my wife in the company of drummers, even if she probably would just teach them how to sit in a circle on the floor and wait their turn to play. Nope, we'll be having something different for our twelfth day of Christmas, but twelve is such a large number. There's very few things that I would want twelve of in life, so I'm going to go with the only thing that I know I can handle an infinite amount of...adventures. I'm hoping for at least a dozen outings to visit new places and explore new things, but I don't just want it for me. Here's wishing you get at least as many chances to venture out for yourselves, to spend time with your family discovering all sorts of new things. Even if you live in the most interesting place in the world, there's still an endless amount of destinations that will enthral you, make you smile and leave you feeling excited about the rest of your life. 

If you do happen to live in the most interesting place in the world though, hit that "contact us" button at the top. I'd love a guest post about what it's like to live inside the Krispy Kreme donut factory!

OK, final verse...Everybody sing!
