Andrew's award

Andrew received an award from Dell for being the manager of the quarter.
Here he is shaking hands with one of the "big daddy" bosses of Dell.
This boss man was actually sitting at our table during dinner. Dinner was wonderful, but it's always a strain for me because you have to try and talk to people. Well, Andrew is now able to talk to any body about anything. I know that shocks some of you. Anyway since several of the people at the table were originally from Texas, Andrew asked about the beaches there. He mentioned we had just returned from Florida. Everyone at the table suggested we skip Texas beaches and keep going to Florida. Then, the big boss spoke up and said it would be just as easy to travel to Cabo Mexico. Andrew nodded in agreement and I smiled. The conversation was not over yet! The boss man would not let it drop. He was really putting on the pressure for Andrew to commit to taking me to Cabo. I was getting a BIG kick out of the whole thing because I know the whole reason Andrew asked about the Texas beaches was for future "family" vacation. Now, because it was the big boss suggesting this romantic getaway, Andrew couldn't just cut him off. He could tell Andrew wasn't too eager, so he started telling me about how easy and fun it would be. As a joke, I asked the big boss for his email so I could ask him about more details on the trip. Imediately he reached for a pen and gave me his email address. He and I joked about planning the whole trip and just letting Andrew in on it after it was all planned! He even mentioned it to the entire room when he gave Andrew his award!! Later on Andrew said he can't believe I got the big bosses email address.
So, what do you think....... if one of the big bosses of Dell tells you to take a vacation, do you take one just because he said to??????

If Andrew can't get away, I vote the moms all get away and the dads stay home with the kids! Sounds like a good plan to me!
