Share Your World – 2014 Week 29
Have you ever been in a submarine? If you haven’t, would you want to?
About five years ago, Garry and I went on a Caribbean cruise. It was one of Royal Caribbean’s newer, bigger ships and it was a long cruise — almost two weeks. In the Cayman Islands, we took a trip on the Atlantis, a 60-passenger mini-submarine from which we could experience the coral reef.
The subs are tiny. Everyone sits on benches, pretty much body-to-body, but there are windows everywhere including the floor. Unless you are crippled by claustrophobia (in which case, why are you on a mini-sub?), it’s all about the windows. You can pretend you are a fish, swimming with those amazing, brilliantly colored citizens of the water world.
They drift by, sometimes in schools, in small groups. Now and then, a big grouper will come to check you out. It was a one-time experience — totally worth it!
Are you a listener or talker?
Mostly a talker, but I’m getting better at the listening thing.
Do you prefer crunchy peanut butter or smooth peanut butter? Anything with your peanut butter?
Neither, thanks. Not a peanut butter person. I like peanuts, though. With salt.
Have you ever been drunk?
I am such a cheap drunk. Give me half a glass of wine and I’m wasted. I got sloshed once in college. I would not want to do it again. I hated the way it made me feel. Fortunately, Garry doesn’t drink, so I don’t have to pretend to enjoy it.
