My sister went on a gambling cruise this weekend. This is the email she sent me this morning when I asked how it went:
Hey sarah…we did go gambling and it was a terrible time…who would of thunk I’d get sick..darn motion sickness…i took 2 Dramamine but I still threw up..twice!! And lost 20 bucks! And then when we were getting off the boat it started torrentially raining on us..so I had to ride back from s.c soaking wet..and I wanted to just take my shirt off to let it dry, but thought it might me inappropriate since it was me, A, her brother and their mom..but I should of just did it..cause now I think I’m dying of pneumonia
Ooh, details please!
i was sitting at the slot machine, we had just hit international waters so we could finally start gambling and I told A that I was going to barf..i said “it’s coming” and she said..well let me get u a bag…(a barf bag)…it seemed like an eternity before she came back, enough time for me to throw up 3 times in my mouth and have to swallow it back down…when she finally came strolling back up with the relief bag, I was pretty much done…but I had some spit I could pack the bag with. We then decided to move to the other side of the ship. I sat in the stool for about maybe 30 more minutes..when this old lady came and sat next to me..then I threw up by her…it didn’t seem to faze her because she stayed and played some more..much to my disappointment..i wanted her to leave me be…when she finally moved I threw my 2nd and last barf bag away. At this time the swaying of the boat was making my eyes real heavy so I laid my head on my arms up on the front of the slot machines. Much to my amazement I fell asleep sitting in a backless stool swaying with the 3 ft swells of the ocean. I didn’t wake up until an old black man sat next to me and woke me up. He then apologized for doing so, and I thought in my head…wtf? There are a million other open slots…but then I just went back to sleep. The boat finally turned around and we were going with the waves, so I felt slightly better. I moved over by A and her mom at the electronic poker seats and laid out there.
And her description of the ride home? Priceless.
Ya..5 hours on that boat…but after I threw up 2 times…i just laid on the slot machines and went to sleep. And what’s really funny is I was trying to look cute on the trip because I have a secret crush on A’s brother…but if u didn’t know already…vomit=not cute. I had to learn the hard way…
Don’t we all.
