Ben's Clarifying Comment

Have you seen Ben's sassy comment about my cruise post? This is it:

"Now for the true story... the boat you see in the background of the picture was not really ours, only the one we WISH we had booked. I'm sure that boat offers a bed for two, hot showers, more ice cream flavors than just chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry (and I bet they'd even put it in a cone with sprinkles on top at no extra charge), more to drink than luke warm water, freshly made food served at all hours of the day, table service, a ping-pong ball for the ping-pong table, a foosball for the foosball table, and probably even customer service."

"Ah but who needs all that - we LOVED our little boat, and our bunk beds, and our vanilla ice cream in a plastic cup, and our stale pizza with ketchup sauce, and being treated like 2nd class citizens because we stood in the wrong line and made reservations for the wrong restaurant, and our cold showers, and... I could go on and on..."

"In all reality, we truly loved not having any responsibility, not having any cell phone service, being able to relax and spend time together. The Bahamas were really fun and the on-board entertainment was pretty good. So all in all, we'd do it again, we'd just pick a different cruise line!"

Kind of witty, no? Especially for Ben! He's not usually so vocal about things. I must be rubbing off on him!!

So, for the record, yes, the cruise line we choose was awful but it was still a relaxing weekend!

Many lessons learned....as always.

So, it was pretty painful to read about your spa day. I felt so bad, and my heart totally went out to you (and still does...). I know it's easy to sugarcoat things for others on blogs... but you finding good in the day is totally genuine. That's just you and you are awesome like that.

And then following the link and reading this- hilarious! I was seriously laughing out loud the whole time... Jonathan in the background, "What the heck is so funny?!" If you can vent and yet see the positive in things (as in both the spa and cruise posts).... then I think that's a pretty good balance :)

It was Celebration cruise line, I think. Totally lame!
