My first cruise was a real eye opener. I saw things I wish I could un-see and things I will keep in my mind forever. Granted I’m not young in years but my mind is still fairly young. Remember I was wild and free in the late sixties and early seventies. That should explain a lot. This cruise thing reminded me of such times. Everyone having a good time and not worried about what other people thought.
During our four days on board I had a multitude of random thoughts.
Did you look in the mirror before you left the room?
Wow, you are rocking that bikini!
Man, please put a shirt on!
Honey, some girls just shouldn’t be wearing a bikini.
Wow, what a beautiful dress.
The hallway just moved.
Where’s the Dramamine?
Five more dollars?
Oh hell, it’s only money.
It’s been a long time since I laughed until I cried.
She’s so pretty.
Wow, he’s so handsome.
Conga line, sure why not.
My feet hurt.
My hip hurts.
I could do that once upon a time.
I won! I won!
Can’t wait until I can go on another cruise!
I’m too old for this kind of vacation.
I’ll let you all fill in the blanks. It was a great time. I kind of wish we had taken a longer cruise but when I looked at my swollen feet and ankles last night after I got home I thought maybe not.
The cruise industry has their act together for sure. Too bad the rest of the world can’t live and work like the crew on ships. Life would be so much more fun and polite.
