I have worked for my present employer for, like, one million years. As a result, I get a nice big block of vacation time.
It makes trips like Kenya possible. But also random Fridays off, a practice I heartily endorse. I used a vacation day Friday and it was a lovely Mental Health Day in Manhattan.
I had a delicious late lunch at Bobwhite on Avenue C.
The food and service were great–they even charged my dead phone for me.
Then I rambled around the East Village, walking off my chicken sandwich, mac & cheese and $3 Kelso Nut Brown Ale (hooray for happy hour prices!).
NYC was sunny and almost-warm. I felt happy.
What do you like to do on a Mental Health Day.
