Traveling with a Non-Cruiser in the Rain

In case you've missed my cruise humor, I will give you hilarious highlights of my cruise through the eyes of my non-cruising hubby:

A woman gets on the elevator in a bathing suit/cover up holding a flexible floatie tube.

Hubby says, it's still raining out ... Woman yells, No no it can't be! The captain said it would be sunny today.  Hubby says, Never trust the captain - we've been lost at sea for 5 days in a monsoon.

Group of people moaning and groaning about boredom and weather so hubby says: What did you use to do 40 years ago on a rainy afternoon ... do that ...One woman answers, we used to play cribbage but don't have a board with us. Hubby winks at husband and says, teach her a new game ...

Woman is giving my hubby lecture about her Ruby status and his lowly Blue Card not realizing I had an Elite Card.  She's telling him a bunch of nonsense about what her "status" gets her and hubby is acting like he's soaking this all in. Egging her on and on.  (We were waiting to board tenders in Maui).  They call out that Elite members may begin boarding tenders and I stand up - black card in hand.  Hubby says - good luck with that ruby card - it's not what you know but who you know that gets you places

Ok..something tells me you would be fun to sit around and have a few with.....

We laughed so hard on this past cruise that our sides hurt... It was a blast - rain and all! BdRebel will be able to testify after he meets me at the giraffe in April...

I love it when things like that happen!Love

It sounds like Hubby had a great time!

Looking forward to the Giraffe in AprilBig Smile

Hubby is a smoker so he had a group of lepers in the smoking colony that he entertained daily. Our son has been a blast on cruises so I expected no less ...Making people laugh, smile and just enjoy the moment goes a long way in being able to have fun. He appeared one evening when we had finally had sun in Hilo and sufficiently fried ourselves...bright red wearing a Hawaiian shirt and announced "I'm an official cruiser now - Burnt to a crisp, sporting Man Boobs from all the food and buzzed enough not to care!"

So funny. It gave me a laughBig Smile
