Entering the competition at work was all thanks to my immediate boss.
- He told me it was possible to achieve the set targets, and he was right.
I’d mentioned that I needed a vacation some time back, and he told me there was a competition coming up. The winner would get an all-expenses-paid trip to Santa Barbara. The reward came with business class tickets and a stay at a 5-star hotel. I imagined how nice that would feel, especially if I brought my mom along. I’d moved back home to be with her since she was not doing so well. I noticed a change ever since, and now she is feeling much better. We both could use some time away in a city I’d never been to. I won the competition and took a week off from work. My mom and I flew to Santa Barbara and got picked up by a limo at the airport. The hotel we stayed at was so fancy and lovely inside. Our first day in Santa Barbara was a blur since all we did was eat and swim. After relaxing, we decided to venture out the following day and explore. It’s while we were strolling that I came across a pot shop. Mom saw me look at it and told me to go inside. It’s legal to use marijuana recreationally in Santa Barbara. I went in, and mom sat outside at a nice bench the shop had set out. I guess they’d experienced people like us before where one person wants to go in and the other remains outside. Mom only had to wait a few minutes because I was not shopping for many items.
