How did all this begin as a small, innocent thought and idea, and now I’ve lost half my friends? There comes a certain time in life when opportunities come my way; once in a lifetime opportunities, and I just have to take off and go with it.
I’ve had vacations and trips in the past but never one as spontaneous as my last trip, and never have I had to hide it from three of my best friends. A chill runs down my evil bone when Ben ask who is down to drop their life for the weekend and head on an adventure, but he is only allowed to bring along half of the group. This was a difficult choice, go away on an amazing offer to travel, but having to exclude and hide it from half of my closest friends. This was not going to be easy. Of course my choice was yes! A weekend of no rules and no “bossy pants” friends in Los Angeles was just what I needed, I couldn’t let this offer pass.
Now that we had all made our choices, it turns out that was the easy part. How would we plan a whole weekend without our own best friends finding out? All of my friends work together so we hang out at their work all day everyday. We all text in the same group message constantly, we all eat together and we basically all live together. This means that for that for the whole week we had to lay low, not meet up with everyone so much, make our own travel group texting group, and have secret meetings outside of work at very late times. Just when I thought this trip could actually run smoothly, all of my friends that work together forgot that they had work scheduled for the days we were heading out.
So as if we weren’t already putting a big target on ourselves by unexpectedly ignoring our other friends, my friends decide to trade shifts and make themselves available for the weekend. Although this made believe that the trip was now on full effect, it would just make it more obvious. Believe it or not, we got through all of hell week of sneaking around without anyone.
