Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Wasn't Rabindranath Tagore The Band That Iris And Zak Went To See?"Stretch class!Tomorrow! Dress-up formal dinner?Love dress up! Show!Entertainment very good!Well worth! Enjoy!(The exclamation mark is almost worn off on my keyboard.)
Isn't saying "dress-up formal dinner" a little redundant? I wish Katie would say, "You know what, lady? We rubes might not know our aft from a hole in the ground but we do know enough to dress up for a formal dinner!"
The shape-shifter to Mary's left is now a woman. Why isn't this the main story line? Potentially too interesting, I guess.-- S. McW.
Today’s Sunday epigraph really ticks me off! It’s a total dis to Toby, and the HOSERS ... I mean, Hoosiers ... are nice, friendly strangers, but they are NOT Mary’s FRIENDS! I’m sorry, Rabindranath Tagore, but real friendship DOES take TIME to DEVELOP!!!Whew! Well, now that that’s off my chest ... Mary’s at it again with her “tips”! Do the Hosers really like to hear her “advice”?Mary’s Helpful Hint #16: If some random, needy stranger keeps trying to insert herself into your life—even inviting you to a formal, “dress-up” dinner in the main dining room—give her a condescending wave, tell her “MAYBE we’ll see you tonight!” then head off to make reservations for CASUAL DINING on the Aloha Deck! She’ll never find you there!
DRAT! Today's Helpful Hint is #17. Sorry! (I lost count after two weeks of this "fun" cruise!)
On Day 1 of the worst cruise ever, Derek mentioned how friendly people were. And yet no one else has spoken a single word. I strongly suspect that they have accidentally been booked onto the annual Professional Mimes Getaway Cruise. We'll find out for sure when Mary and the others attend this evening's very good entertainment.
Anonymous: Yes, at the rate the occupants of that chair are changing, perhaps Mary needs to seek a class in personal hygiene.
Poor Derek. He gets to spend his vacation getting nagged at, being threatened with divorce, going line dancing, and going to a formal dress-up dinner that Mary Worth is at.Maybe he'll snap and start chucking people overboard!
Wanders, if there are acrobats there better be pork chops!This has to be the most stilted, boring dialogue EVER. I'd say it sounds like it was written by bots, but that would insult bots. Oy veh!
Tonight's show is really going to be something. It's "A Salute to Mayonnaise", based on the poetry of Wilbur Weston. A celebration of blandness, a true Splaktacular. The audience will be enchanted. Also, there will be complimentary kelk and chicken salad bar snacks. The drinks, however, are in no way complimentary. $7.50 for a rum and diet Coke, extra if you want Bacardi instead of Captain Morgan. (The lime wedge and little umbrella are extra as well.)
Katie is wearing a scooter skirt! I had one in the 6th grade, which was way back in 1966. Glad to know that I was a style-setter.
Pork chops and acrobats, live on the open sea!
