Have you ever run out of something so special that the only solution was to travel to the source for more?

It finally happened. It’s a terrible thing…

…to run out of dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts.

*sniff*

The end of the world is near! The last two chocolate covered morsels—if we eat them does that mean our Maui vacation is truly over? Or, worse, that it never happened (despite the thousands of millions of pictures we took)?

There is a very simple solution. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it sooner.

It’s time to go back to Maui to restock on dark chocolate macadamia nuts. Oh, and pineapples, too.

In a parallel universe, I suppose, this would be a possibility. Off to look for a source closer to home…

But  then something (almost as terrible as running out of chocolate) happened!

I broke the glass pendant that I bought from a Mauian artist. *pout*

It was the one special thing from Maui that I bought for myself (using birthday gift money, no less). I didn’t want a shirt or a muu-muu.

I might be able to fix it, but it’ll never be the same. I tried Gorilla Glue, but the pendant is really heavy and the glue didn’t hold the glass. There are other options.

One option is to return to the source. I have TWO reasons to go back now, right?

“Field trip!”

Don’t you think that’s the perfectly logical solution? What vacation items have you brought home that make you want to go back for more? Do you have a favorite vacation spot that calls to you like a siren song to return over and over again?

      I thought so, too. 😉

      Hey, are you going to WANACon? Hope to hear you there again!

  1. You definitely need to go back! That’s the only reasonable option. I mean, the artist who made the pendant can fix it for you, but they’re on Maui, right? Gorilla glue – pfft! You need the real deal. And while you’re there, getting your pendant fixed, you’ll HAVE to pick up some more chocolates and pineapples. That’s all there is to it.

      Bermuda?! You must go back for more pictures! That’s a perfect reason. Looks like two field trips are in order. Thanks for stopping by, Coleen!

      Oh, I wish! LOL. I have located the artist’s contact information though.

      You need a matching set! Field trip to Prince Edward Island. I’ll be checking out the website.
