The ship's rail also looks inviting... to a two year old.
She better be careful, because I'm not sure I trust that Peter Boyle-looking dude she's about to sit next to.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Mary's Turn To Drop Some Cruise Knowledge On Another Unsuspecting Rube".Short break. Inviting...Love! Refreshing!More!
Goodness, were is that man's right hand?
I didn't think any couple could be as insufferable as Evy and Ed Taylor, a.k.a. the Tee-Hee Twosome, but here are the Hoosiers - ugh! One, or, better, both of them can't fall overboard soon enough.
OK, I'm bored. When do we get to the first port of call? I'm ready for a shore excursion. Toby will do the zipline and Mary can do the town walking tour that includes lunch at an "authentic restaurant frequented by the locals"...I wonder what the dear darling Hoosier plot twist will be? Seems like the smoking thing is foreshadowing, but who knows.
The only thing that can interrupt this lovely travelogue is if a plot breaks out.
I really don't understand why Ian and Dr. Jeff didn't want to go on this cruise. The past few days have been so exciting. (Like watching paint dry!) I don't know what's worse...the Beedies storyline, Olive and the unending vacation or having Mary mull over the same "Dear Wendy" letter for two weeks straight.
Building on Kit Kat's post, wouldn't it be great if Evy and Ed Taylor, with Olive in tow, showed up on the cruise? What a surprise for Mary! And here come John Dill and Ken Kensington, who overcame their rejection by Mary to become a couple. They can all sit at the same table in the dining room with Toby and Mary and and the Hoosiers. It will be delightful, mainly because there is no Beedie involvement.
The guy getting his tan on is a made man from the Port Canaveral 'family.' When Mary advises him that he needs sunscreen on his pate, he will say, 'Wanna smooth it on there for me, Doll?" Or else, "Beat it, Granny!"
@Meg: Was so happy I wasn't drinking something when I read your comment.
@Regina: thank you!
@Sandi Ego - this was a bargain cruise. There are no ports of call. They will sail around in a circle 20 miles off the coast for a few days and then come back in.
Seriously, Mary? The chairs look inviting? Sure, just about as inviting as huge slabs of American cheese that have calcified in the sun.
Holy cow. I am FASCINATED. The plot is moving so slowly that we're maybe two days away from the plot stopping completely and running backwards.
Mary's Helpful Hint #13: If your travelling companion is getting on your nerves with BORING BLATHER and you aren't allowed to light up a nice ciggy, STRIKE A POSE on the Aloha Deck and pretend that you're a character in a SOCIALIST-REALIST mural! It's oh-so-STALINIST and will make you FEEL proud, progressive, and forward-moving!
Let the meddling commence! Bald, chesty dude, you are in for it!
