There are many simple pleasures in life. Some things I would include in that category are: the sublime moment when you climb into bed and let your mind completely wander for the first time all day, the smell of garlic and onions browning in olive oil, and a slurpee on a really hot day. Above all of these I would put a random day off.
I am not talking about a vacation day. That would imply that you are taking the day off for some express reason. I am talking about a day off just to use up a day off. That is what I have coming up on Friday. My wife has it off because she is a teacher and it is her mid-winter break, so I decided to take time off so we could relax together.
This idea of unfettered time off is great. It literally made my whole week better. I was halfway through on Tuesday and as I am writing this I only have one day left in my week. This idea is excellent. Maybe if I get enough time off one day I will take every other Friday off, now that would be great.
