Captains Log.. Day 5

Woke up surrounded by the sea again... Today we are scheduled to be at sea all day.
We met up with sharyl and eric for breakfast.. and used our daily patter to schedule out what we were to do today on the ship.    Clint and Eric wanted to do the texas hold 'em tournament. So Sharyl and I decided that at 11, we would play Bingo.
Well we get all signed up for bingo at 11, and we are sitting there dabbing away at our number... B11, N45....  then some old woman yells "BINGO!!!!!!!" we are like.. darn...
so game 2 starts...  we are both dabbing away... not even like 10 minutes into the game... some young girl yells bingo....  darnit.. REALLY????????
ugggh.. so game 3.....  I had one more number to get and I'd have had bingo....... he calls out a number.. and it was one off from mine.. darnit.. and don't you know... BINGO from the back...
Sharyl and I are like... SERIOUSLY?  well yeah.. they are winning all the bingo money...
so here we are... final round... we are thinking.. ok.. we are totally going to win, we both bought extra cards for the $1400 dollar round.  Things are tense in the room...  numbers are being called out.. patterns are being dabbed on sheets... and Sharyl says.. ok.. 2 more and I've got a bingo... I had like 3 more to go........... more numbers and dabs... then "BINGO!"  *le sigh*   we didn't win bingo..
let me tell you what...  I can see how elderly people get into fights over this game... just saying...
well.. once that was over and we licked our wounds and collected our bingo sheets and dabbers.. we walked over to the casino to see what was going on.. the guys were sitting at a PACKED table... and in a few minutes there were cha-cha dance lessons going to be going on in club fusion....  so we tried to get them to go with us.. but, they weren't interested in our dance lessons.. so Sharyl said... ok I'll be the man... haha.. So off to the club we went..
There were a bunch of people there.. so we were split up into guys and girls.. and sharyl had to stand on the guy side! haha..  So when it got to the time to practice.. Sharyl says "this is my dance space.. that's yours.. let's cha cha" I busted out laughing... holy dirty dancing batman..  So I was all "spaghetti arms!"  we had a blast.. and learned how to cha cha.. once that was over.. we went back to the casino.. and the guys were still in the tournament.. therefore; we decided to go shopping...  well... didn't really find anything we liked.. until we found a little "street sale" going on in one of the deck hall ways.. outside of a jewelry store. I bought me a set of pearls, 3 strands, Czechoslovakia Pearls... I bit them.. they were real.. the little asian boy behind the counter looked appalled that I did that.. but, hey.. I'm not buying some crap...
well then we got into this other store, and Sharyl found a pair of pants to where for the formal supper tonight.  they were pretty too.  So, we got all done shopping, which was a few hours... then went back to the casino to see how the guys were making out at the table...  My cowboy asked what I bought and I said.. something for tonight.. but, I used my poker winnings for it :)
Well after that.. we said.. we were going to mozey on up to our hair appointments... So we stopped at the horizon deck (buffet deck) and had a cup of coffee.. since you had to pass buy it to get to the 15th deck..
So we spent some time chitchatting doing our girl talk stuffs.. and headed up to get our hair done..
We went for the 20-30s theme this night..
My hair dresser Zara put tons of pin curls in my hair.. it was awesome. Sharyl's hair looked darn good too, her hair dresser did a good job on it.
We moseyed on back down to our staterooms and got all dolled up, yet again :) and headed out to Sabbatini's Italian restaurant, which was conveniently located on the ship....
I had Veal cutlet........ all I can say is.. It was amazing... a nice half inch cutlet grilled to perfection.... mmm mmm mmmm.  Then we rolled out of there and over to a, well what I thought, was going to be a marriage game show... I had NO idea that we were going to be on it...
So Eric got up.. and said he was signing them up for it.. well they get everything situated and low and behold.. we hear.. Collette say over the pa system "a newly wed couple from South Carolina, Clint and Tara"..........  that moment of.. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh noooooooooooo RUN went through my brain..... well they called up another couple that had been married 25 years.. and another that was married 53, which actually were the ones partying next to us on the balcony.....
SO, They introduce all of us to what seemed like the WHOLE ship... and they took us women away.. and asked the guys some questions.. nothing bad... and we had to answer them.. and if we answered the same as our spouse we got points.  well, we were like 4 for 4 the same... then they made the guys go away..  I won't go word by word each questions.. but, I'm going to tell you the most significant one.......
They asked "if your husband was to dress up in drag, what would he enjoy the most? A) Women's underwear. B) The Makeup. C) Jewelry or D) Shoes.. Well they started with the lady of 53 years of marriage, She answered the underware...  Then they moved to the lady of 25 years.... she said.. Underware.. they get to me... my gears are burning... I'm thinking man that's embarrassing to think of my husband in women's clothes.. and funny to try to picture him in a pair of heels.. and makeup?!?! yeah no way.... then I got to thinking.. well.... he designed my engagement ring.. so I held up the Microphone and belted out "the jewelry.. definitely the jewelry"... So then the guys get escorted back in.. and they had red roses for us, awwwe.  So they start down the end, with the couple of 53 years.... and he says "ohhh definitely the underwear woohoooo", people are laughing....  then they move to the couple of 25 years.. and he says "oh yeah women's underwear heck yeah".. then they get to my newly wed husband... and he grabs the mic, thinks for a minute... then speaks "Well, I would say women's underwear, but she doesn't wear any.................... and there isn't even a pair in the house......................... so I'm going with jewelry........" The look that was on my face.. must have been priceless.... but, people were laughing and just hootin' and hollerin'......... and I'm in shock.. thinking ... yeah he just did that... he really did... well..... after reality set in.. all I could do was laugh.. that really was funny... And we wound up winning the newly wed gameshow, and we were pretty proud we beet two couples married 25 and 53 years.. that's a long time to spend with someone... and I hope we are still finishing each other sentences then, but I know we will be.. we are like two peas in a pod!
We finished that night off with their London pub comedy hour, which was an absolute hoot! and went to sleep to make our journey to Victoria, British Columbia the next day.
