Songdoc's Rationalization

Jump to last reply

I've always been exceptionally good at rationalizing anything I want--but I think I might have graduated to a new level.

I just 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! 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 good part of the rationalization ...)

So instead, I'm breaking up the trip be 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 "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:
