Hello all friends / followers / family. Today was our fifth day at sea (with Pitcairn a kind of an interlude) – we better get used to it because its 5 days from Tahiti to New Zealand and 10days from Dubai to Maputo.
We have no problem with this suspended state / limbo because we have found the small things that make life worthwhile.
As anyone who knows Michael knows – he is a confirmed caffeine addict. He started off by drinking the “coffee” readily available all day at the buffet – only to discover it was coffee essence and tasted awful. Next he started “rolling his own” – had the plunger, the coffee grounds the whole thing. Tasted better and the buzz was good but this was not good for the ships plumbing – coffee grounds may have an unpredictable effect on washbasin or toilet drainage. Now today, the answer to world tension. The coffee bar card. For $25 the junkie was able to buy a card that gives him………tadaaaaa…. Unlimited brewed coffee and 15 specialy brews ie cappuccino – the nectar of the Gods. Whats more, junkies spouse in the interest of his rapid pulse rate, found a coupon!!!!!!! Buy one (coffee bar card) and get one free – so, for $25 – unlimited brewed coffee X2 PLUS 30 capuccinos – remember, the nectar of the Gods. All is well in the land.
Meantime, Merle, not to be outdone, discovered the…… tadaaa…… special teas only available for coffee bar card holders. Among the available tea delights she discovered the tea of the Gods – white Pear Tea each teabag in an individual package box.
Now truly Equanimitas has been created
