  1. I need a bed, and I need A jump

    Maybe even a pillowfight?

    Staycation is defined as, meeting your youth in a hotel room and nobody watches.

  2. …it was my sad version of a subliminal message…glad you got it!!!

    and thanks for teaching me this wonderful word…from now on, you are considered the pioneer of staycations!
