“I know,” I sighed.
“…ziplining, bus tours, train rides…”
“I know,” I repeated.

“Come on, it’ll be fun,” I insisted. “There really aren’t excursions like this anywhere else in the world!”
“No thanks, I’d rather stay in the cabin. Either that or go with you with a paper bag over my head. Go have fun on YOUR excursion.”

I know you’re all excited, so let’s get started. Let me show you how to drive a forklift.”
