The Chronicles of Travis' Vacation, day 8

Today was unexpected. I went over to some friends' house to play video games. Not being one who enjoys console games, and certainly not being one who has played them recently, I did pretty extraordinarily badly. I still don't understand why people are willing to playing console shooter games. It just doesn't make sense.

We went out for bubble tea, which was just weird. I couldn't drink too much, being allergic to milk and fearing not being able to breathe out of my nose for days if I drank it all, but it was pretty interesting. It tasted like strawberry Quik with a slight tea flavor and lots of little chewy gummies.

So now here I am, with one day remaining in my vacation, and oh-so-very-little accomplished of what I planned to. It was fairly relaxing, but could have been better. It didn't feel like much of a vacation, though it was certainly nice not to have to go into work. One more day until I have to fight back and insist that I'm not doing two weeks' worth of work next week, which is almost certainly what will be implied but never stated.

I lost my phone for the first time, too. It's probably just stuck in a chair at those peoples' place.
