Usually, it takes a little time to get to the vacation realization moment, the moment usually right before the end when you say "Ahh...this moment sums it all up." That was last night.
Last night was "green dress formal night," and people got good and creative with the definitions of "green," "dress," "and "formal." "Green" could mean environmentally sound, dress could mean "kilt," "formal" could mean "giant Kermit the Frog costume." Full-on Kermit. He was an instant celebrity. People had their photos taken with Kermit.
My vacation moment hit me last night during the Great Big Sea concert, while I perched in the balcony and watched Kermit dance madly in the audience below. The person in the Kermit costume got hot at one point and stripped off his head, revealing his Inner Kermit, and Gary recognized him as someone who had been in the front row for the Naked Photo. And this disturbs me.
After a while the Kermit head was tossed around like a beach ball. This was also a little disturbing. But my moment was over by then anyway. Kermit was dancing, and, by the big smile on his face, appeared to be having a good time.
Be glad your husband recognized him when Kermit's head came off... not fully costumed and taking a whiz in the bathroom. THAT would be disturbing.

Headless Kermit is disturbing but not as disturbing as the thought that he was earlier naked and in the front row? Have another Martini, Queenie.

Tammy - Yes! Especially since he was wearing the Kermit hands with the Kermit fingers.
Hot Mom - I had four Martinis, a mudslide, and a Red Stripe. It would have made you proud.
Becs - Really? Okay. Needs a haircut, if you ask me. Crinkly eyes, through.
