There are times when I need a break as in “Matt can you do baths and put the kids to bed?” and then there are times when I need a break as in “I’mgonnalosemyfuckingmymindifIdontgetoutofhere” breaks.
Guess which one I desperately need?
I was talking about this topic with a friend of mine the other day and we came up with signs that you definitely need a big, fat break.
1.) You hear about Lindsey Lohan getting jail time on the news and you think that sounds awesome. A jail cell…hmmm…you’re alone? Check. No one talks to you? Check. You can read? Check. You can watch TV? Check. Someone brings your meals? Check. No one talks to you? Check. You’re alone? Check. You’re Alone? Check.
2.) Someone you know is on bed rest. Or in the hospital for some other reason, non-life-threatening of course. And you think to yourself…hospital? I could lay in bed all day? And read? And watch TV? And someone would bring me food? That sounds miraculous.
3.) You’re driving on the expressway and see a sign for Chicago. You start dreaming about hopping on that road and driving all night long until you get to Chicago. You go to your favorite restaurant. You go shopping. You stay in a hotel room alone. You get to watch movies and read and relax.
Definitely time for a break, don’t you think? What are your signs that let you know you need a break?
