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.

  1. Half a drink o’ cheer & I’m happier than a clam.
    So- I stay away from alcohol unless I’m with one of my two bodyguards (My hubby or my youngest brother). LOL


  2. I want to go on that submarine. How fun was that!! Thanks for sharing. Glad to know there is someone else who just doesn’t like the feeling of being out of control 🙂


    • Peanut butter is very sticky and it sucks the moisture out of your body. I always feel like a freak because it’s so popular and I don’t like it.

      But the submarine was intensely wonderful 🙂


    • Did that too. In Florida I think, when I was a child. The reefs and fish are a whole other world. It’s nice to get a glimpse into that other space. Kind of like outer space, but more accessible.
