Having just finished up my umpteenth trial in as many months ("umpteenth" is one of the lesser-known numbers in our system, but it's still a valid number), I am thinking it's about time for a vacation.
Someplace sunny. Warm. Exotic. Restful. Non-trial-y.
I could go to Europe, say, and see some historic sites and the Mediterranean and... whatever else it is they have in Europe. Or I could head to South America, where it's currently summer, and I could go to those beaches they have in Brazil, the beaches that you can't even Google at work because the women on them are so skimpily dressed.
There is one small problem with my dreaming of a vacation. Well, okay, TWO problems, the first being that my wife would likely NOT approve of a plan to go to those beaches, and the other being that I currently am not made of money and therefore I have limited... okay, no... funds for a vacation.
I don't know yet how to solve the first, but I do know how to solve the second problem: I've just entered the TravelPro sweepstakes that'll get me *fingers crossed* 500,000 miles from the Delta SkyMiles® Program.
As in: go around the world, free.
Travelpro is a luggage company that likes to note that frequent travelers and flight crews use their luggage because it's so tough-but-stylish. So it's only natural that they'd hold a contest like this, where they'll give a lucky winner two (2) Travelpro® Rollaboard® bags, and the aforementioned 500,000 Delta SkyMiles, miles you can use to go to Europse, Asia, South America -- almost anywhere in the world. And it's free to enter, so there's no risk whatsoever.
So, see what I mean? Lawyers are problem solvers, and I solved that problem pretty quickly. Now I just need to work on the Brazilian beaches thing. Maybe if I suggest Asia. They have beaches in Asia, right? I'm pretty sure they do. They have everything in Asia.
Anyway, while I work on that, why don't YOU enter yourself in the Travelpro sweepstakes, too: All you have to do is go to
And sign up. No cost, no obligation. Just a chance to get away -- far away. And, ideally, to a beach.
