As it happens, today is also one of the every-other-Friday PTO use days, whereby I'm taking the day off because otherwise the accrued time in my account — even at the 15-year-accrual level — would vanish due to hitting the 37.5-day maximum accrual. But I guess I could also say that I'm taking the day off to celebrate an milestone date.
