Well, that was an adventure – and a half. As I’m now a fully-fledged crew member, I have to pull my weight and share the duties – there’s no room for freeloaders. Fine with me, but I thought that just meant helping with the eating, climbing and dancing. Wro-o-ng!!
The Cap’n and The Mariner had seen me studying Sailing for Dummies, but I was only using the book to rest on while sunbathing – didn’t know they expected me to READ it. It turned out they expected me to share the three-hours-on, three-hours-off shifts. Three-hours-of-terror, more like.
HELP!! Cap’n….HELP!! Mariner….WAKE UP!!! Don’t know which is port or aft, or starboard or what…Help MEEEE!!!
Oh, wait a minute, think I might have got the hang of this.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy…!
