Kevin Blanford won a vacation to Puerto Rico from work, but had to go without his family. Puerto Rico stepped in for a re-do.

Blanford's original free vacation came with the stipulation that he could only bring one person, so his wife stayed home with the kid and he took a friend. Partly as a joke, partly to ease what must have been the guilt trip of a lifetime, he started sending her pictures of him looking miserable throughout his vacation. And a photo series was born!
It was titled "Not a Single Second of Fun in Puerto Rico." (via Imgur)
The pics went viral, because they're hilarious, and the Puerto Rico Tourism Agency saw them. They decided to foot the bill to give Kevin and his wife and kid a second chance to enjoy the beautiful island's beaches and cocktails. It also gave them a chance to make another photo series, in which he claims he had "many seconds of fun":
What a racket! Get a free vacation, pretend to be disappointed so you get a SECOND free vacation. Reminds me of a restaurant guest who sends a meal back to the kitchen with nothing on the plate but garnish.
Here's a few more pictures of him looking "miserable" then "happy"...life is an illusion:
Okay...that baby's pretty cute. (via Imgur)
Sigh. They look happy. (via Imgur)
Baby's still cute! Dammit! (via Imgur)
Share sangria with the one you love, I guess. (via Imgur)
Then have them tuck you in at night. THAT BABY THOUGH. (via Imgur)
Well, Kevin Blanford has life figured out. Endless vacations and a family that loves him. May we all one day have a terrible time in Puerto Rico.
