Urban Word Wednesday: Vacationitis

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Vacationitis: The lack of concern for any of one’s responsibilities in the days (or weeks, or months) leading up to a vacation. Physical symptoms include the wearing of capris and jeans at work, flip-flops, or Uggs, and a lack of makeup or grooming. Dishes begin piling up in the sink, and the afflicted’s response to most questions is: “Uh, I’ll worry about that later.” Can happen as early as the date of vacation planning, or as late as the hours before the flight leaves.

Examples Of Use:

Hubby: so what’s on tap for Wednesday’s post this week? More of our sexual conversations, bedroom exploits, noon-hour rendez-vous, or shopping expeditions? Is nothing sacred between us any more????

Me: oh hubby, stop it, you know you love it! But no, I am afraid I will be disappointing you and our fans. I’ve got a terrible case of vacationitis!

Hubby: what!?!?!?

Me: given that we are flying out IN 12 HOURS for our 2-week vacay in Punta Cana, I can’t concentrate on anything…blog…work…urban word fun…it’s all totally escaped me. I am mush!

Hubby: well I can’t say as I blame you. I can’t concentrate on anything but grabbing our suitcases and flying outta here! Ola Punta Cana!

Me: knowing my readers, they’ll forgive our little bout of vacationitis!

Yip, you read it correctly – hubby and I are flying out of here for a little FUN in the SUN!! We are going to be in Punta Cana for the next two weeks. Squeeee!

No worries, I have the ever fabulous Jessica O’Neal swinging by for a guest post on Monday (squeeeee…thank you Jessica) and I have a few more surprises in store for you while we are away.

I hope y’all will continue to make yourselves at home here! Talk amongst yourselves, frolic in the comments, blogjack one another, enjoy shameless self-promoting, and have an all around party!!! I’ve taken the “first-comment” moderation off so all hell could very well break loose…FUN….have at er’ and let the good times roll.

I will catch up in person upon my return April 23, 2012! Till then…have fun everyone…I will miss you but will console myself with girlie drinks on the beach as I say “cheers” in each of your honor!!!

Have you ever suffered from vacationitis? How you stay focused when you are so close to jet setting to your vacation destination?
