Vacation Recovery

We had to return from vacation one day early because that anti-semite Danny was threatening New England, which didn't seem that bad to me until Husbandrinka pointed out that we were in New England and that our ferry ride could be in danger. Having cheated death on the ferry ride to the island, I was reluctant to try it again.

So we left on Friday, and the ferry ride was pretty uneventful, except I was sitting within throttling distance from a young child who made death by drowning seem totally appealing. Because he would not shut the fuck up. He had a little motor train for which he was providing the acoustics at nerve-damaging decibels. His parents seem to have been brain damaged by his previous antics because they sat completely silent, without any attempts to suffocate their demon child.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, my own children spent the ferry crossing reading the Bible and washing some lepers' wounds.

I have a lot to say about our vacation, and I promise to get to it before the year is over. I promise it will be totally worth the wait. (These promises aren't binding, are they?)

And some day that annoying child will be all grown up and have his own show at Fox news.

Perhaps your children could have drawn on those religious powers and either made you deaf, or the demon child mute????

Glad to hear your children are so well behaved. I've got a 17 year oldthat needs a bit of work. Can I send him your way?

Sorry your vacation was cut short. Up here on the Vineyard everyone was freaking about Danny. And yes, it's raining, but absolutely no wind (which is so disappointing; I love a good hurricane), so our boats are running as usual.
Or maybe the obvious religious fervor of your kids caused the waters and winds to calm???

Welcome back. Glad the Gods didn't gobble you up. I'm sure your children were positively angelic. Yeah. :o)

I mistakenly brought mini tractors for my boys to play with during a wedding last weekend.

Yup, those will be some nice background noises in their video.

I'm sorry to hear you had to cut your vacation short but I can't wait to hear all about it! (No pressure, of course.)

Marinka, your vacation posts are cracking me up. I'm so glad the ferry didn't go down like the titanic ... although on the way back I might have tossed that kid overboard. I'm kind of mean like that though.

Blessings and I'm off to your vicki's place!

At first, I worried that the loud children could have been mine but then I realized we've never been on the ferry and then I began to think "why the heck would teenagers play with trains anymore?".

So, I'm fairly confident those kids weren't mine. And in that case, someone should have pushed them.

Loud children are so ridiculously irritating. A woman of your stature should not have to contend with such a nuisance.

yes, that's right. get out your bibles. it's your turn for the hurricane, you northeast ivory tower elitists. the big man upstairs has wrought enough vengeance on the cesspool of homosexual sloth that is new orleans.

those parents should have been tied together with the kid and the three of them tossed overboard. but hey, that's just my opinion...
