Maybe she thought you meant some other walkway!
Derek is perpetuating the stereotype that hunks are as dumb as a box of rocks. Katie gave a broad hint that she was going to the ladies room, did she not? So if Derek had a higher than room-temperature IQ, he might stroll down the walkway toward the outhouse, whereupon he would hear his wife screaming and pounding on the door. Unfortunately for Derek the Dummy, the next time they see each other, Katie will likely be screaming at and pounding on him. And deservedly so.-- S. McW.
As usual of late, it seems that Mary will be of no help whatsoever.
Mary’s Helpful Hint #46: Be very careful giving—or taking!—advice to newfound acquaintances on the ship ... especially if they think they’ve misplaced a loved one! You don’t want to be complicit in a person’s disappearance! ... Maybe he murdered her and is just trying to use you as an alibi! ... Also, when a fellow passenger in distress comes to you for advice, wait until he’s not looking, then be sure to SWIPE the REALLY NICE souvenirs he bought! Ka-ching!
I have to say, this plot is simply MOY-velous! (Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk!)
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Hulk Confused".Already?Here! Without!Feeling? Ahead...
Considering the number of people on this cruise, how is it that Derek just happened to run into Mary and Toby, a.k.a. the Tiresome Twins? Harrumph!
So the bathroom is in sight of the boat, right on the pier that all the returning cruisers are walking past, and nobody hears poor Katie? (Or maybe they just don't want to get involved). Heck, I think that's even Mary, Toby and Derek out there on the corner.And there's nobody manning the souvenir stand right next door? Must be an honor system souvenir stand.
@Nance, I'm still picking myself up off the floor from "Hulk Confused". Note to Marvel/Disney, for the next iteration of Bruce Banner, please consider Benjamin Bratt?The Bargain Cruise Lines vessel looks like one of those monster mega ships with 3-4000 passengers. Somehow Mary and Toby manage to keep running into one or both of the Hoosiers without any prearrangement. In reality, this just doesn't happen, but let us continue to willingly suspend disbelief.
Yeah, it would be easiest to assume she's on board already. Full steam ahead, captain!
"What is it, Lassie? What's wrong, girl? Did Katie fall down 'the well' again?
The BATHROOM is RIGHT THERE. She said she was going to use the BATHROOM, which is RIGHT THERE.And second question (because Chester has never "cruised") don't they do a headcount of all passengers before they leave? Especially leaving HAITI?
@Chester, your cabin key card is your shipboard ID for everything. It has to be swiped on leaving and reboarding the ship. Derek can have them check to see if Katie is still ashore. If he fears she's in trouble, a search will be instituted. (In the real world, at least.)
Okay, so is Esme thinking that the ship will sail away without Katie and that Derek will not stay behind to try and find her? Huh?
@fauxprof--Don't get up too fast and feel lightheaded. Stay down there and stretch out a bit. (Unless you start hunting dustbunnies or bothering about pet hair or something.) And thanks. XO
