The above question is pretty much a rhetorical one. We all have “plans” for fun; it’s getting the time, money, and energy to carry out those plans that seem to be the problem. The social media part just comes naturally with every tweet, post, and published word. Yeah, right.
I’ve got some great ideas for the rest of summer. Things that can be done for little or no money, won’t require a lot of travel, and can be accomplished on the spur of the moment. AND will give you seriously great stuff to tweet and post about.
Paint the tires on your car different colors. Just imagine what the neighbors will say when they see you drive up with orange tires. Well who cares. Point is, it’s great for Instagram.
Go on a picnic, but not to a beach or a park – instead have your picnic on a downtown street corner. Once you figure out how to keep all of the scurrying office workers from stepping on your blanket you’ll have it made. Selfie time – just you, a 12” from Subway and legs trying to step over the blanket.
Post shots of exotic and beautiful vacation spots. When followers ask about them just casually reply that you’ve been thinking about a great vacation (hey, you have. You may not be able to afford it but you’ve been thinking about it);
When you go to sleep tonight, and it’s hot, just imagine that you’re hot because it’s Palm Springs or Las Vegas and not because electricity is too damn expensive and scarce to run air conditioners;
Walk outside at night and look up at the stars and pretend you’re seeing them from (pick whatever exotic location sounds good). Do not tweet about this – you’ll just sound desperate;
I hope this helps you at least somewhat with your summer plans. These ideas may not be the best way to spend the summer, but they are cheap so what the hell. And if you can afford a really expensive vacation go ahead and take it. Need a butler?
