Wishing for a break......

"Computer begin personal log." Machado requested of the computer in Dodd's office.
The computer chimed it was ready.
"I have been working diligently on maintaining the cloaking device. I have been feeling a great sense of honor in the assignment. However, I would love to have a couple of days to live in the holodeck for some relaxation. I don't do it very often, but I would really like to go camping on Endor. The thick jungles would be great to let me just get out of the technological confines of Engineering and the ship. While I know it would only be a holographic jungle, I would be able to get a little more primal and let myself loose for a little while. No restrictions other than holodeck safeties. I would only take a few simple supplies, a knife, a tarp, a canteen, a blanket, and a flint. I would find some animal to eat and the flint would be what I start my fire with, while the tarp would be my shelter, the knife my protection, the canteen for my water and the blanket for something soft to lay on. I know most Klingons don't have even these simple comforts, I am not a typical Klingon.
Well my short break is over, and I have had a chance to rest for a few minutes and enjoy a beverage and a snack, so now I need to get back to my duties."
"Computer, please end recording of personal log and store in personal file." Machado requested of the computer.
The computer chimed and Machado resumed his position at the cloaking device.
