“Glamping?” Richard said. “You mean camping, don’t you?”
“Oh you silly boy, heavens no,” Delores laughed. “I meant what I said — glamping.”
“What is glamping?”
“Glamping is a mashup of the words ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping,’” Delores said. “It’s essentially camping in style, or luxury camping. It’s camping without any of the hassle or hard work or dirt!”
“But I thought you were fervid when it came to camping,” Richard said. “You loved roughing it in nature, getting down and dirty. When did you embrace this luxury glamping thing?”
“Oh yes, I loved camping the old fashioned way, my dear boy,” Delores said, “but that was when I still had my youthful exuberance. Now I’m older, wiser, and most important, I’m more delicate these days. By the way, did you remember to call the camp headquarters and reserve a site?”
“Oh damn,” Richard said, “I knew there was something you asked me to do that I totally forgot about.”
