Google confessions

I made this post on Facebook today:

Recently I got bored and searched for _______ on the internet.

Mine: flights to Honolulu

Have you ever done online searches out of boredom?

Actually, it was less about being bored and more about wishful thinking.

I really need a vacation. Like really, really need a vacation. I haven't had one in a couple of years and need some down time.

However, the likelihood of Honolulu is zilch.

Once upon a time, say 13 years ago, this was supposed to be the year of the Hawaii trip. I was whining about wanting to go to Hawaii, but didn't have anyone to go with me.

One of the cutest little three or four year olds that you ever did see had no clue in the world where Hawaii was, but said, "I'll go to Hawaii with you Baqbaq!"

A deal was made that when that little girl graduated high school we would go. Summer 2019. We talked about it for many, many years, then something bigger fell apart. 

So curiosity got the better of me, and I Googled flights to see what they might cost. Why not?

Maybe someday. Maybe.
