Wait till you break 80.


I have but that was a long time ago.

First night we were in Kauai a couple weeks ago was when they got 25-30 inches of rain in one day in the northern part of the island. Fortunately we were staying near the airport and weren't really planning on going to the northern part much.

I was in Kauai at the same time too! We were in Wailua and I got photos of the flooding in Hanalei. We went to the Queen's Bath the day after and got pounded with more rain. I had to throw away my socks and shoes due to the mud. Climbing back up was like going uphill in a river.

I get drunk like once a year. I'm 36, so I'm old now... But I don't miss getting excited about getting drunk.

I just don’t really like being drunk. I like GETTING drunk (the buzz), but being drunk is t much fun for me.

Plus I generally vacation with my kids (and often with you get nieces and nephews) so getting ripped on the daily is t much of an option

I vacation with my kids all the time and have not done a vacation day without a drink with them.

I didn’t say that I don’t drink, I say that I don’t get drunk.

Vacation days WITH children is a reason to drink more. Trust me.

That's potentially fair, but if you're doing the all inclusive Mexico trip like I'm imaging David did, that's definitely like 60% the point, otherwise you could do much cooler things.

Outside of bleacher seats at Wrigley, Hanalei is my favorite place to be. Still hoping to get back there this winter. The north shore is a very relaxing place with incredible fish tacos.
