Once upon a time, there was a workaholic accountant who toiled away in the sweat shops of the corporate world. (Okay, use of the term "sweat shop" is a gross exaggeration. It does, however, add spice to the story.) She rarely took time off of work, and even when she did, it seemed to follow her around. Noting her need to break free of the work-a-day world, her lovely sister invited the accountant to join her on a cruise. Not just any cruise, mind you, but a cruise with the handsome and gallant John Mayer. Armed only with wit, charm and song, Sir Mayer could slay dragons, procure Grammys, and set a fair maiden's heart to fluttering without breaking a sweat. The accountant, being quite smart, immediately agreed, and so began the planning for the voyage of the year. (I would say of a lifetime, but I am betting that the second voyage will easily out do the first.)
Fast forward to January 31st in the year two thousand and eight. The accountant and her sister have made their way (on a horse named "Volvo") to the fair city of Miami where they embarked on the journey that will henceforth be known as Mayercraft 2008. While work proved to be a vicious foe, the accountant fought a fierce battle and with the help of her sister, slayed the evil cell phone. Throughout the next three days, the two lovely sisters had a goodly number of adventures and met an interesting variety of individuals. Life vests, and musicians, and drunkards, Oh My! There was laughter, singing, relaxing, drinking (in moderation of course), and talking. Above all, there was music, fun and sister-time. The sisters viewed Sir Mayer from a variety of stages, admired members his troupe (his posse if you will) both known and unknown, laughed about the characters that they met (or avoided) along the way, and revelled in all of the activities even when they prevented all but a bare minimum of sleep. All in all, I'd say that the accountant and her sister lived happily ever after....until they were thrust quite unwillingly back into the realm known only as reality. While they were indeed forced back to life, back to reality, never fear. There is always a new adventure to look forward to.
The End....Or Is It?
In the next book in the series, readers will find that accountant and her sister in the midst of Mayercraft 2009, as hosted by the gallant John Mayer. In this installment, Sir Mayer rescues the fair accountant from the evil Corporate America. After he has slayed this most evil of foes, he whisks her away to a sunny place where music and laughter reign supreme...... Mudslides and Music and Mayer, Oh My!
