"Honey, I'm going
to have to call the ship's plumber." "You can't do that ! I am
100% completely naked !" So her boyfriend threw her a sombrero and a
serape, then called the plumber.
When the plumber came in, he shook his head. "Mister, I can save your girlfriend,
but that poor Mexican has had it."
I don't know about the rest of the passengers, but from my point of view, the accident
and the story of the pretty girl stuck in the potty more or less ruined my day.
Apparently I wasn't the only one. Quite of a few of the Cruisers said their day was
ruined too at some place called Tulum. Garald and Virginia McEathron were nice enough to
share some of their pictures with me. The ancient Mayan civilization was famous for their
pyramids and structures. The best known pyramids are at a place called Chitzen
pronounced Chicken Itchin', but naturally we didn't get to see those.
Actually, I didn't get to see anything. I had an attack of Montezumas Revenge the exact
moment everyone was boarding the boat to the Tulum Ruins. Faced with a choice between the
Runs and the Ruins, I ran desparately for my cabin. By the time order was restored, it was
"hasta la vista baby" for the trip to the Ruins. Sam was mad at me, Judy was mad
at me, everyone who ended up sitting on the bus in traffic all day to see a bunch of rocks
were mad at me, but the way I saw it, I "flushed" $150 in no-refund trip money
down the drain. Oh well. Sam got to go horse back riding instead. I think she came out
ahead in the deal. Judy's horse didn't like her. Afterwards, Judy's Mojo was so sore it
didn't move properly for three days.
That night the Cruisers had a big Trivial Pursuits Party, but no one told me. Lindy
Hop, who is a terrific Trivial Pursuit player, brought her game with her, but was stunned
when a team of Marty, Maureen, and Alyssa somehow managed to beat her. Apparently the game
was very close and went right down to the wire. I would list more names, but no one
invited me to play nor would speak to me. Everyone kept saying how worried they were that
I might say something terrible about them later on. Ostracism is a very painful
social disease. After all the terrible things that happened today, I was very glad when
the day ended.
Tomorrow : Cayman Islands ! Don't miss it !
