Me: So what do you have planned for your summer vacation?
Colleague: Not much. I’m going to do some research while the kids are away at Vacation Bible School.
M: Vacation Bible School?
C: Vacation Bible School.
M: Wow. That’s two concepts I’d never think to pair together. It’s like a summertime oxymoron.
C: How about you? What do you have planned.
M: We’re going to Hawaii for three weeks.
C: Three weeks? How’d you manage that?
M: My wife’s folks have a condo on the big island, so we’re staying there.
C: Nice. They’re letting you borrow their condo for three weeks?
M: Well, they’re going to be there too.
C: Aha. You’re about to spend three weeks stuck on an island with your in-laws. And you’re giving me grief about vacation?
