Subject: RE: Post-vacation Displacement, or the Coming-home Blues
Well, John, lemme put it his way:

When we are on a ship, we do NOT want to get off.... much like a child on a merry-go-round. We have a difficult time working back into our home routine. We are like fish out of water - so I would have to say that we do, indeed, experience your PVD.

If we tire of anything, it's the pushing and shoving in airports, etc. We love train travel in England and Europe but a ship is our favorite way to go.

If we had no cats here at home, I think we would simply vanish to parts unknown and worry about a place to live when we have exhausted all of our dreams.

HOWEVER, while abroad (I've always been a broad, but that's not important), we come to understand how babies feel with all these faces speaking and the poor infant has no idea what's being said and can only cry.

It's always good to get home, but Pavlov's dog has nothing on us - post cruise, upon arrival home, should the doorbell ring, we IMMEDIATELY salivate. We *are* pathetic. (I certainly hope that all you Ziners out there got a good laugh - and I'll bet that some of you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about! )

Sara NEEDING to thumb through the psychiatric section of the Corpus Christi phone book!!!! ;-)
