So, I'm in Seattle this week on vacation with no access to a computer.
As such, I've decided to try to create a post of my activities for each day, and see
if I ended up getting it right.
This is Day #4:
Well, looks like the Sox listened to me and had a shutout game, beating the Mariners 1,324 to 0.
That's better. I mean, hey, I paid $60 for these seats. At least give me a shutout!!
Back to the vacation.
Today we went on a harbor cruise to try to see some Orca's in Puget Sound.
Honestly, I thought a puget sound was what came out when you were throwing up.
But, apparently, it's water that has whales and shit in it.
Good to know.
So we went on a cruise to see Orcas.
I sat inside and waited and waited and waited for the movie to start, but it never did.
I was SO pissed when we got back to the dock that I started yelling at the captain.
Me: "Listen, asshole. I came here to watch Orca but, apparently, YOU didn't get the message. There was NO movie on this cruise. NOTHING. I sat inside this cabin for an hour and a half for what? Nothing. I want my money back."
Captain: "Sir, an orca is a whale. We saw several of them on this cruise while you sat inside, alone. We were not showing the movie, "Orca" - this was to see live whales. A whale watch cruise."
I thought $80 to see a thirty year old movie was a little steep.
Sometimes, pamphlets need to be more specific.
Tomorrow we might take a ride to Mount Rainier.
I don't know who this Rainier person is, but I'm pretty excited to mount something on this vacation.
Wish me luck!
