Did I ever tell you that one of dream jobs is to become a cruise director? How fun would that be? A while back, I wrote about my top ten fun jobs and I have to say that I am fantasizing about it again.
The wanderlust has hit me again. I want to T.R.A.V.E.L. And be that anonomous person behind the camera acting like a tourist. And what the heck is wrong with that I ask? Nada. Not a thing.
Last year, when I went to Cabos, I had a strange thing happen to me. As my hubby and I were walking around in downtown Cabos, we ran into a little group who was struggling with directions just as we were.
We had a perfectly normal conversation. Then a gentleman asked me, "Are you on the cruise?"
To which I replied, "No we flew from Austin."
And his expression changed. He looked a little sadly at us and then it turned into pity.
"Oh. Ok." And then he did the most brutal thing. He walked away from us.
We, who were not on the cruise ship, were not worthy of his time.
So now you tell me. Have you ever been on a cruise? How was it? Do you think as someone who is claustrophobic and fears heights could survive a cruise? And don't you want to be a cruise director?
