Must be empty nest induced psychosis -- That's the only way I can explain it. My father, the retired teacher is 56, my mother, the out of retirement RN is 54. They are going backpacking in Vietnam in January. They will be living out of a backpack, eating street food.
First my Grandmother calls me up and starts telling me dirty jokes and then this. My world has gone off its axis. First, you need to know my parents to know how totally out of character this is. Their age is not the issue -- they are 2 very youthful and active people. These are the people who raised me. They go to sleep at 2100 hrs, for god sake.
I'm kidding! I'm really proud of them for doing this. I'm jealous! I want to go too. I want to eat to curried goat testicles on a skewer on some street corner, dammit!
