Grown-Up Perks

I woke up this morning with a slight sore throat and the beginning of a headache. I'm not really, really sick, but I'm also not completely well.

In the olden days, I would have gone to work anyway, because tonight the Small College basketball team will face Big Rival in our own fieldhouse and my mantra as a mother always was "If you don't go to school, you don't go to the ballgames, either." I really want to go to that game.

But hey, guess what? As an adult I not only have sick leave, I also have vacation days so if I'm feeling up to it tonight, my sick day just turned into a vacation day.

There are times when I love being a grown-up.
