ME: Hey Alexander. Look at this great vacation my friend is taking in Jamaica.
We look together at Kris’ Instagram stream
ALEXANDER: Where is that?
ALEXANDER: Isn’t Jamaica dangerous?
ME: Not in resorts it’s not. [I then show him the resort website]
ALEXANDER: But resorts are boring.
ME: You liked Costa Rica.
ALEXANDER: I liked Costa Rica outside of the resort.
ME: It would be the same kind of vacation. We’d have activities planned for each day.
ALEXANDER: But we’d just come back to pools and restaurants and white people. That’s so boring. I want to actually go somewhere and really be there.
For the record I completely agree with him… until I’m presented with no air conditioning and a lumpy mattress.
