Cruising along

A few days ago, the Parental Units told me that I would be receiving my Official Cruise Documents today, delivered via DHL. They would require signature, and naturally, they would arrive on a day when I could not possibly work from home, what with the two and a half dozen meetings I had to squeeze in.

I got home late this evening and when I opened the screen door to unlock the door to the house, there, leaning up against the door were my Official Cruise Documents. So much for requiring a signature.

The Parental Units instructed me to check them careful and I did but aside from the spelling of my name (which, for as easy as it is, is misspelled more often than not), I knew not what else to check. Unless I hear otherwise, I will just assume that they are right and I am in good standing.

54 days and counting.
