Vacation blues. A cry of linguistic distress arrived from David Rosen: “The Boston Globe of Saturday 16 August carries a picture of a golfer in the buff and describes taking a naked vacation as nakationing. I suppose, like staycation for those who do not travel for vacations, it is a variation on vacation. What's next? Will the equine set take neighcations? Those who like the sea take baycations, and will fresh water enthusiasts take lakeations? Will those who do not have vacations as a work benefit envy those who have paycations? The possibilities are limitless.”
Can you think of any? I imagine going to an orgy would be a laycation. If you visited Israel, wouldn't it be an oyveycation? And taking it the month after April would be a Maycation. Going to a church camp makes it a praycation.
Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again. Nollidj is power.
Well, yeah, but. I'd rather think of goin up to the North Pole after Christmas, and asking Santa what he dreamed about doing with some time off, and then doing exactly that. Now THAT would truly be a for-Nick-ation.
Maybe he wanted to be in a very small train compartment with Mrs Claus; then it could be a four-knee-cation. Or if he was sick of the cold weather and wanted to be near an oven in France it could be a fourni-cation.
