The Man Trip.
Related to the Man Cold.
When you get ready to go on a Man Trip, the only thing you have to do is pack your own bag and leave.
You do not have to worry about getting coverage for the day to day things that you usually take care of. Someone else will surely do those.
You do not need to make sure that the fridge is stocked, essentials are in the pantry, or that clothes and school/sports supplies are ready for the time you’ll be gone.
You do not write out a daily schedule of where everyone needs to be or reminders of all of the special activities going on that week.
While on your Man Trip, you only worry about what is happening on your trip.
You’re not concerned that something will be forgotten at home.
You won’t be called or texted and asked to fix some situation at home because… well, you’re gone and the person at home will take care of whatever it is, instead of asking you to do something they’re perfectly capable of taking care of.
And when you get home from your Man Trip, you get to relax.
You’re tired, so you’ll probably take a nap.
You won’t walk into chaos or realize you are the only one who can do things like take out the trash.
You won’t try to go to the bathroom and discover that no one bothered to buy toilet paper in your absence.
The Man Trip: where you simply go, take care of you, and know that someone else will take care of everything else.
This post is in fun.
It’s based off my husband and I taking back to back trips and the differences I noticed. It’s completely hypothetical, but the next trip I take, I’m going to request the Man Trip option.
