On a plane the other day I saw three women together – maybe late 20’s, jeans, good shoes without heels; it seemed likely they were three old college friends, maybe heading for a weekend of skiing. But one women was reading a book with a title like “Leadership and Self-Deception: Breaking Out of the Box” which is so NOT vacation reading, at least not a mental vacation. Although with Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side gone, I guess there really aren’t many options.

I suppose it counts if you take your body on a trip, but I think it’s better if your mind goes somewhere too.
