Prompt for April 21, 2014 – Day 111

Happy Monday, folks! A couple of friends of mine were telling me that they were going to be off today and it made me a little sad because I basically never get a Monday off. Then I remembered that I get two off next month and it made me smile! I’m taking one off to travel home from my sister’s graduation from Columbia College, Chicago and then I get Memorial Day off at the end of the month. Can’t complain too much about that, right?

On to your prompt for the day!
