This is the blog you are getting this week.
I am pretty sure it’s not my best work.
I can live with that, since when you get this
I will be finishing up a five-day vacation with my wife, Lauren, and my daughter, Betsy.
It is our first official family vacation.
Hopefully, I will have not picked a fight with Lauren
because I don’t know how to relax or think I deserve
to even go on vacation.
The other problem is vacations are technically supposed to be fun.
The irony is not lost on me, since I teach improv, which, as you, know is all about having fun.
Sometimes I will finish teaching a class and as I leave the room I will hear the students say that was “really fun tonight.”
I think to myself, this is the case for those who don’t teach.
The point is, I struggle having fun.
Usually, the best part of the vacation is the day when I know I am going home.
The nice thing for me about getting older is that I am much more teachable than when I was in my arrogant 20s, 30s or 40s when I would never have the courage to go on vacation.
Even at my age the thing I have learned is that if you want to get better at something you need to at least start.
And five days is a good start for me.
Talk to you next week.
