Songdoc's Rationalization

Jump to last reply

I've always been exceptionally good at rationalizing -- especially when it involves something I really want. It's possibly my greatest talent ;-). But I think I might have just graduated to an entirely new level.

I've booked my flights and a Sealodge condo to spend four weeks in Kauai -- leaving January 8th. (This is completely separate from the four weeks that I'll be spending there in October.)

January in Kauai sounds great, right? Um, er ... except for one little detail. Three days after returning to Nashville I'll be teaching a huge event ... and the following day I'll leave to work in Ireland! That’s a 12 hour time change from Hawaii. AGGHH.

So, here's my rationalization ...

I want to live in Kauai. If I already lived there and I chose to take a job in Ireland then I'd still be flying from Kauai to Ireland. (Here comes the really impressive part of the rationalization ...)

So instead of doing the grueling trip from Hawaii to Europe, I'm breaking up the trip by stopping mid-way -- and "getting my bearings" in Nashville--then continuing on the second leg of the journey -- to Ireland!

Has my Kauai addiction gotten completely out of control? Am I crazy??? Should I open a new business: “Rationalizations-R-Us?”

PS. I still haven't unpacked from the Canadian Rockies. They were MAGNIFICENT. If you want to see my photos (taken with my new camera) check out:
