You're Where?!

The last time my brother J. called me and said 'Guess where I am', my first response was jail. I think that hurt his feelings so now when he calls and says 'Guess where I am,' I play dumb:

Um, work? Home? At the mall?

Last time the correct answer was Colorado. Sure most people would let their loved ones know if they were jetting across the country, but not J. He's a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants kind of guy.

So yesterday, he sent me a picture message of a palm tree. A little while later, a picture of the Gulf of Mexico. J. had jetted down to Florida for the week. On a whim.

Who does that? And why can't I?

Some people can just pick up and do stuff like that. Others need a plan. It is what makes the world interesting.

PS Your brother sounds like my sister.
