A Stay-cation is something you do when your broke. You can't go on a real or proper vacation out of town, so you just stay at home. You take a stay-cation when you get a fake promotion or No-motion ( promotion with no money). You go to Mickey D's or KFC around town and not the Charthouse in Maui. You eat burgers and chicken wings and not prime rib. It's not all that bad because you can catch up on all the "honey do" projects your spouse saved for you through out the year and you don't miss your favorite TV shows.
Hey everyone, I'm celebrating my No-motion by going on a stay-cation right here at home...How nice!
