I’m not big on vacations. I don’t like sitting on the beach in the hot sun and just doing nothing but cook. What am I, a fucking potato?
Wrangling kids on to a plane to drag them to a resort where obsequious waiters follow you around is also a drag. Rides are fun but not if you have to wait in line for an hour. So, when my wife suggested we go on an “education” (an educational vacation) I told her education is already a word.
My son is really into Ben Franklin so we devoted a few days to checking out all the hotstpots of Philadelphia. I love Philly. I like the people there and the bars. Its rich history is fascinating. The only problem is, you can’t really enjoy what’s great about Philly because the fucking bums run the place. That and a shit ton of Muslims.
That place is one Giuliani away from being the perfect city.
