My kids went back to school Monday after a week of Spring break. We enjoyed a wonderful week full of sunny days, the great outdoors, and bicycle riding; however, several children in my kid’s classes went on a cruise for Spring break.
I am happy for their families, because it’s nice to experience a week of warm weather when you live in the tundra. If I had the money, I would have been cruising myself.
So the dinner conversation naturally turned to these kid’s experiences on the cruise ship.
Finally my daughter exclaimed, “Well, we went on a cruise too!”
I know I’m on the fast track to Alzheimer’s, but I would have at least 542 photos of me with a sunburned nose and 10 extra pounds of cruise food to remind me of my dream vacation.
Laughingly I said, “We’ve never been on a cruise. What are you talking about?”
Finally after much splanin by FringeKid, the lights turned on in my head.
“That was a ferry! NOT a cruise.” I said cracking up.
And that my friends is Red Neck Cruising.
Come July, I’m gonna tell my kids to pack their bags. We may just set sail for Staten Island. The upside of that kinda cruise is that we’ll be home in time for me to cook dinner.
