Edward Packs For Vacation

I have some news that may be upsetting to some of you. To others it may be glorious. I am going on vacation for a week and will be AWOL. I will have some internet access on my trip but don't know how much interneting I will be doing. I will get to check in here and there so hopefully you won't all have to go through withdrawal.

On Sunday we are leaving for Michigan. My daddy lives up there and we go a couple times a year to visit. He is right near two lakes, so there is plenty to do and plenty of things and wildlife to keep Edward entertained. I told Edward that he should start thinking about what he wants to pack. Before Edward could pack, he needed to solve a certain packing dilemma first.

"Love, I don't have a suit case."
"Oh. Let me find you something you can use."

So I went searching for something suitable for Edward to use. I don't have any mini suitcases. I thought about letting him use one of my small purses, but he growled at that idea. I looked and looked until I settled for the only thing that could pose as good Edward luggage.

"Are you kidding me?"
"It's all I have!"
"Fine......Stupid tool. Guy wouldn't know how to play a vampire if one slapped him up side the head and gave him implicit instructions on how to do so."
"What was that, Edward?"
"I said thank you for letting me use this. It's really nice."
"Your welcome."

Edward then started to rummage around looking for things that he would like to take with him.

"Edward, why are you taking your umbrella?"
"It might rain. Why else would I take it?"
"Well, you don't really need it. If it rains you can hop in my purse."
"That could look conspicuous. Humans don't jump in someone else's purse when it rains."
"Silly me. What was I thinking?"

Next Edward packed something for extra curricular fun.

"I definitely want my skateboard. Everyone will so forget about Tony Hawk after they've seen my mad skills."
"Edward, most people have already forgotten about Tony Hawk."
"Then my work is almost done."

Edward packed his shirts next.

"I will definitely be the most styling vamp there."
"Edward, you will be the only vamp there."
"Then I will still be the most styling."
"Good point."

Then Edward grabbed the little E post its he got me for my birthday.

"Why are you taking those?"
"For my journaling. There is a lot of time to reflect on vacation. And this is the smallest source of paper we have. Do you mind?"
"Not at all. Knock yourself out."
"Ha! Like I could be knocked out. You are so absurd sometimes."
"Edward, you are absurd all the time."
"I'm going to do you a favor and take that as a joke."

Then Edward packed a pen for his "reflecting". I really can't wait to see Edward's reflections.

The last thing Edward packed was his most needed necessity.

After all, it can get windy by Lake Michigan.

Just when I thought Edward was done, he said he forgot something very important. And boy was he right.

Can't travel without Mrs. P. That is like sacrilege.
Edward was finally done packing. He started to close up the lunch box when I asked him a question.

"Edward, do you think you might want to take one of the new Edwards with you? You know, so you can have a friend you can hang out with when us humans go out to eat or anything like that?"
Edward contemplated this for a moment. He seemed to be on the fence about it for a bit before he made up his mind.
"That seems like a good idea. I think I'll take Masen with me. We seem to have a lot in common." Edward ran off all of the sudden. I suspected it was to tell Masen about the trip. I didn't expect Edward to take it a step further.

"What are you doing?!! Let me go!"

"We are just going on a trip."
"That's what they told Jimmy Hoffa!"
"Ugh..Stop being difficult and get in the box!"
"No? You are going in the box and you are going to Michigan! We are going to have fun whether you like it or not!"

Edward threw Masen into the lunch box and the two vamps started an epic battle for control.

"I don't want to be locked in the box. I'm claustrophobic!"
"Don't be such a baby!"

"Shut up! Stop wiggling!"
"Let go!"
"You are insane!"
"And you are cargo. Now get in there!"
The struggle continued for a few minutes.

Edward had the upper hand. It wasn't looking good for Masen.
"It's just vacation. Nothing to be scared of!"
"I'm scared of dark enclosed places! And you shoving me into one!"
"Oh my god!! You can see in the dark! Now get in there!"
Edward gave on last shove and Masen succumbed to the lunch box. Edward quickly shut the lid and locked Masen inside.

"Um, Edward, we don't leave until Sunday. Do really think Masen should be locked in there till then?"
"He's fine. He'll calm down in a few hours."
"But he really isn't comfortable in there..."
"I said he's fine!"
I have no idea what that was all about. Who am I to have Edward all figured out. He is more complex than a woman.

Anyway, Edward is all ready for Michigan with his luggage in hand.

"Alright, I'm ready. Which way is Michigan?"
Until next time my little chickadees. I'll miss you all. Don't have too much fun without me. And you all know where to reach me if something important happens. And hopefully Masen comes home alive.

All I know is that im locked in a box with Masen...awesome. By the way, Masen CAN see in the dark...I gave him an eye test as soon as he got in there.

See you in Michigan.

Living with Edward said...

@Mrs. P: LOLOL!! Did you take a picture of hime with your phone with the flash on? I think that could cure blindness.

Mrs. P @ TwiBite said...

Help! Masen is poking me with the umbrella...oh wait...

W/V---herro. (!!!!!)

Oh, this is going to get good...

Have a great time and be safe!!


Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Oooh, I can't wait to see the shenanigans from Michigan. Poor Masen, though. I think you should rescue him from the box. It's cruel for him to be in there, even if he's got Mrs.P. to keep him company.

FYI, even after all this months, I still get surprised by how amused I am from reading your blog. Rock on LWE.

Living with Edward said...

@Mrs. P: Don't tell Edward. He will rip Masen to pieces for that behaviour.

Ps. Your veri word is uncanny!

@Lisa: I hope you are right, or they are both going to have an appointment with the zippo.

@Jelena: I'm so glad you told me that. I just woke up and I had a dream that a regular left a comment saying they didn't like this post and that is wasn't good and I'm starting to loose my touch. I was so frazzled. I needed to hear that. LOL

Dangrdafne said...

Mrs. P - I would think that you wouldn't want Masen to see in the dark... then he would have to feel his way around ;)

Have a great time LwE and good luck with Edward, Masen and Mrs. P. I am curious about Edward's reflections too :)

Be Safe

Jayla said...

mrs p, edward and masen on the same trip- whoa... if that isn't twitter fodder i don't know what is.

lwe: enjoy your trip.

Mrs. P @ TwiBite said...

Oh great....Masen is sketching me now on his E pad. He says I "fascinate him"

Musing Bella said...

PMSL - you think YOU can't wait to see Edward's reflections, I am on the edge of my seat, laughing so hard I will soon fall off. :)

Also, I don't like this post, and you've lost your touch. ;) j/k - I love this post as much as always, and I love Edward and Masen and Edward's suitcase-packing ways. "You're insane! "Well, you're cargo!!" LMAO

Have a great trip!

P.S. The 'lets came to work with me today... and so did my camera...

Living with Edward said...

@Musing Bella: I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE THOSE PHOTOS!!! I think I may be more excited for that than you are for Edward's reflections.

TwiWeasel said...

LwE it was very nice "meeting" you via twitter via Lisa last Saturday. She told me that it was an absolute must that I check out your blog, and so I have.

You. Are. Hilarious.

Can't wait to see where this ends up! LOL're def not losing your touch, gained a follower! YAY!

I really LOVED this post. And The Clan! Finally - someone who has way more Edward dolls than me! I've come back to your site every day - hoping for an update or tidbit about the trip. I can't wait for you to come home and tell us about Edward's & Masen's adventures!

I also sent this link to my daughter. She thinks I'm a bit nuts and never gets excited over the things I send her, but she loved LWE so much, she has emailed me three times about it and she keeps calling to find out if there is any news. I guess I'll have to 'splain to her that she can become a follower too! That's a switch! Mom knows something about the internets that she doesn't!

Helz yeah! Like where to find the best Rob-porn! Umm. I probably won't be sharing that with her!

Hope you've all had a great trip. Please share the details with us as soon as you get caught up with RL back at home!

Living with Edward said...

@The Rugbymom: Thank you so so so much for the kind words. They really mean a lot to me. I'm glad you and your daughter are enjoying the blog so much. I love doing it and when other people enjoy it too it makes it that much better.

I got back from vaca last night. The drive took 5 hours longer than normal so I'm exhausted. But I called of work today so I should get something posted either today or tonight so stay tuned! LOL
