"You remind me of my mother. She folds towels, too. Enjoy the rest of your cruise."
I'm sorry, but I can't focus on anything but the pale, pale, potbelly of the man lounging behind Mary. I don't think there's enough sunscreen in the world...
"I'm going to the towel folding demo later. Katie, would you like to join me?""Uhhhh, I'd love to but, uh, I've got, uh . . . a dentist appointment. Yes, a dental checkup. And ooooo look, I'm late already. Ta ta!"-- S. McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "The Suspense Is Killing Me".Oh Katie...Derek!Are enjoying?Yes. Beautiful!Indoor activities. Towel folding!
Towel folding! Oh what heights humankind has reached. Organized towel folding. These are the days of miracles and wonders, just like Paul Simon said.Okay, I'll annoy y'all with another "I'm an admitted cruiser" item (my name is Toots and I'm a cruiser):The background dude, who really looks like he spontaneously broke out in a jig, is apparently attempting to get in a little jogging before he attends the next towel folding demo or loses some more money at three card poker. Most of the cruise ships I've been on create a jogging/walking path that is on a deck separate from most of the lounge chair, sunbathing areas. Just as Mary and the Hoosiers are doing, many oblivious cruisers will see this area as an unclaimed deck gathering spot and stand or stroll or park their keisters right on the path to the annoyance of people looking to exercise in the fresh air. (And why wouldn't you want to do this outside? There's some maniac screaming Y-M-C-A! at the top of her lungs in the gym.)Some of those jogging areas might be on a deck wide enough to accommodate lounge chairs and the jogging/walking track. There it might be a little more ambiguous, but usually the track part will be marked in some way to indicate that you shouldn't drag a chair on top of it.Interesting note on Scott McW.'s post....some of the cruise ship spas offer teeth whitening among their services. I've personally never used any of the spa services because they are way overpriced and I understand that they also involve a lot of pitches to sell you overpriced moisturizers and such.
I don't know why I assumed S. McW meant Scott McW.
Marked jogging tracks! Are there fish painted on them pointing in a counter-clockwise direction?
@Toots McGee: 100% accurate on all observations! Anyone else here in Cruising Anonymous?
Those grey joggers are running away from the very mention of Towel Folding!
I like the people in the background running away from the Hoosiers and Mary.
Derek should consider the towel folding. Maybe he could fold towels into the shape of a cigarette pack.
KitKat- Nah, he would roll them into giant ciggies!
Mary's Helpful Hint #15: If your marriage is a shambles due to nagging and addiction, attend one of the many BORING activities on board (BORED, get it?). Towel folding fits the bill! To make sure you don't argue or get nasty, invite a seemingly blah passenger to join you! Mary Worth is PERFECT for this! (And everything else, too! Plus, she's passive-aggressive enough for the BOTH of you HOSERS ... I mean ... Hoosiers.)
