It's really a bit sad when the most exciting thing going on in your life is watching your parents attempt to take off on a cruise. Then again, since I've been ill for the last couple of months, the second most exciting thing was attempting to seek out new veins for the nurses to stick another IV into in the hospital, so I suppose things could be worse.
At any rate, I just got a call from Mom, who is now safely in Canada, along with Dad. There was a bit of an issue when Dad almost passed out, but they got him a wheelchair and after that, everything was fine.
Now, before you say, "Oh my God, that poor man" or similar, I'd like to point out that embarking upon a cruise involves potentially several hours of standing in line, waiting around, filling out paperwork, and other unpleasant things. However, having a wheelchair kills the first altogether, cuts large gaping holes in the second, and lets you pretty much get on with the third without any of the aforementioned unpleasantness.
Personally, I strongly feel that if Dad hadn't almost passed out, he (or Mom) certainly should have at least pretended to do so. I'm definitely making a note of this for my next cruise. A wave of a delicate fan, a dainty hand to the forehead, a bit of graceful almost-crumpling and POOF! No lines, no waiting!
And now, after making the mistake of attempting All-You-Can-Eat Sushi while forgetting that I'm not quite up to the same "All" as I was before I started getting ill, I'm definitely crashing. Getting up at four AM isn't quite the same as staying up all night, but at the moment, it sure feels like it! :-)
Nighty-night, dear! :) (CRASH!!!!)
Now i want sushi, and i'm stuck on an acreage outside a VERY small town.
hahahah !! i knew the email you sent me about their uneventful send off was too good to be true.
i'm glad it wasn't anything serious. :)
i hope your dad doesn't misplace his passport and have to live in err..*waves at histy* on the boat... yeah..
Yes, last night I tried to eat all I could of sushi, but found it wasn't all that much, and Naby had to clean my plate.
*makes sad face*
Still, it was sooo good. Sushi makes ya happy!
Hey, that reminds me... I made this eons ago:
You can have it if ya like. :D
Glad to hear all went well and that your dad figured such an efficient way to deal with the foolishnesses of embarking on a cruise. See you SOON! Wow it is HOT in Reno...what's up with that?
I know, I can't believe how freakin' hot it was yesterday.
Hey, give me a call -- I have nothing planned for today and Charlie's off conquering big rocks somewhere with the Jeep. :-) (You got into town yesterday, right?)
Sushi is delicious stuff and good for you too, how can you beat that?
I hope your parents enjoy the cruise!
