>I’ve learned that I don’t like to be on vacation longer than 3 to 4 days. After that, I get irritable and just want to go home.
Also, I’m very indoorsy. Sitting by the pool induces many of my phobias. Getting sunburned, being in a crowd, not to mention the vat of germs percolating in the center of it all. It’s not that I mind getting wet. It’s that I mind getting covered in various bacteria in which mass quantities of humanity have dipped.
Natural bodies of water are just as bad as community pools. I can’t stop thinking about what might be lurking in each droplet.
And just in case you were wondering, I don’t walk in dirt if there is a paved path to follow instead. I especially won’t walk in dirt/rocks if I am not wearing the proper foot gear. It’s kind of like camping…why bother if there is a more civilized alternative?
>I'm not big on long vacations either. I'm not afraid of germs so much, I just miss the pets and our own house.
>My home never felt more welcoming than when I returned the other day.
You know, I actually don't mind pools at someone's house. It's the community/public pools I find revolting.
