Spring break is supposed to be a great time from the second it begins, until the second it ends. Now there is always that boring time it takes to get to wherever you may be going no matter how far that may be it is always the least fun of the entire vacation. My last spring break’s car ride happened to be the least fun by far of any trip I have taken up to this point in my life.
It all started out not so good before I had even left to pick up my buddies who were riding with me for the trip. My good friend Josh had came to stay with me the night before we left for Panama City Beach, Florida. We both figured this would save us some time the next day since I already had to pick up another guy on the way to Florida. That night, after Josh got to my apartment, we went to the gym to get a quick, last minute “beach body” workout. The workout went well but when we returned to my apartment after the workout the first upsetting preview of the trip to come had occurred. Somehow, I had dropped my debit card in the parking lot of my apartment complex. I searched frantically upon finding out after we returned that it was not in my wallet where it should be. I searched for hours and hours and finally gave up on the extensive search. Now this is no ordinary debit card, this debit card was my ticket to the carefully planned Spring Break ’08! It had all my hard earned money I had been saving for months beforehand in order to even go on the trip. I went to bed that night thinking all hope was lost for my vacation.
The next morning, hope was restored! As we were packing my car full of all the essential spring break gear such as: beer, clothes, tanning oil, and of course, more beer, Josh happened to somehow stumble upon my debit card in the middle of the parking lot. I took this as a sign from the man upstairs himself letting me know that this vacation was meant to happen no matter what! This was only a preview of the ups and downs of the trip to come.
