Sometimes you really need a holiday. Like seriously, totally and utterly. This is quite a regular need in the lives of most humans. Something else that happens, albeit very rarely, is the feeling of not needing a holiday. This more rare state of being usually occurs during (or immediately after) a holiday and it is often very short lived.
If we think of ‘holiday need’ as a scale with ‘totally needing one’ at the top and then ‘not needing one’ at all on the bottom, that leaves us with middle ground and you may be wondering where you fall on the scale. Luckily here at The Bowgie Inn, Crantock, we have devised a way for you to find out.
All you have to do is look at the images below and answer the questions.
1.Does this photograph….
a) Make you want to go home, get started on the laundry and spring cleaning.
b) Make you smile as you reminisce about your favourite holidays of yesteryear.
c) Make you drop to your knees and sob because the thought of going to work and doing the school run is too upsetting.
2. What colour do you most associate with this photograph?
a) Black to represent the despair of not being at home and ticking things off your to do list.
b) Blue like the sea and sky but also like the cold. It’s not yet warm enough to frolic on the sand in your opinion.
c) Yellow like the warm, comforting inner glow of happiness at the thought of being somewhere so beautiful.
3. What word best describes what comes to mind when you look at this image:
a) Nothingness – you feel nothing when you look at this image. No emotions are evoked, no feelings are stirred…. nada.
b) Fondness – you smile at the fond memories of Crantock holidays as you go about your normal day.
c)Desperation – you are so desperate to be there with your feet in the sand that it actually hurts your heart.
So how did you do?
You currently are in the rare state of not needing a holiday. We don’t really understand your mind set, but we will do our best to accept you and we will always welcome you if you ever decide to take a break from all your jobs to have a quick pint here at the Bowgie.
