Twenty Minute Posting: II

So, this is my second edition of the "twenty minute posting" routine I started a couple of weeks back. As you can tell, I've already slipped and missed last week's posting, but that's mainly because I had the busiest week and weekend in a long, long time. To cut a long story short, I agreed to play keyboards and sing for a friends band at a small function that he was a part of. However, as a result of some 'connections', what was supposed to be a one night gig turned into two additional shows at the Hilton and Galadari, on the same night!

As you can imagine, I'm pretty tired, with a total of 12 hours of sleep under my belt in the last 4 days. Do the math: I'm exhausted! But boy was it fun.

Which is why I'm really looking forward to the avurudhu (Sinhala/Tamil New Year) holidays next week. Counting weekends, it's a total 9 days to just relax and NOT have to travel anywhere by bus, car or meter trishaw. Home cooked food, TV, movies, gaming, never-ending trips to the fridge to steal some dessert. 

Only, after calling my parents today, it seems that's NOT what they have in mind. No, my mom is planning on - you guessed it - going on a trip. "Can't be sitting at home and cooking for all of you only during those days no?", she says. Which sort of makes sense; she's probably as sick of cooking and household chores as I am of work, travelling and living out of a travel bag. 

The frustration. On top of that, the parents want me to suggest a destination for our little excursion. How do I tell them that the only trek I want to take in the next week is the journey from my basement bedroom to the kitchen and back?

Wish me luck, dear readers.

Why not send your parents off on a much-deserved break and stay home yourself?

@ABCDme - unfortunately, i don't earn enough to send them off on a holiday, and anyway, they aren't the type to go anywhere on their own and leave me and bro at home.. perhaps another time..
