Okay, I've got my gloves, my hat, my poncho, my jacket, my windbreaker, my overshirt, my undershirt, pants, three pairs of socks, Doc Martin shoes, an extra change of clothing and a silver flask.
I know how to handle a sword, so I'm ready to take on the pirates and defend the captain. I've got my camera and extra batteries and my notebook and two pens and a pocket knife (which I've used to cut tape for packing boxes, but I'm
sure it is still good). Regular glasses, sunglasses (who am I kidding?), an energy bar, my ID and hush money. I got air in my tires and ibuprofen in my blood.
steady rain in
the morning, with showers
continuing in the afternoon. High 47F. Winds W at
20 to 30 mph. Chance
of rain 90%. Rainfall
around a quarter of an inch.
I hope there is a nice place to plug in my computer and perhaps some wifi. And do they have, I don't know...flight attendants or something? And it would be nice if they added some "all you can drink rum punch" like they do in the Caribbean. And, it isn't as if I'm making my poor characters go around the horn, you know. They are in a nice, warm Caribbean sea, so I don't think the rum punch is asking too much.
I'll have to chat with the captain about this as soon as I'm aboard.
I think I'm ready. At least I thought I was until I read the forecast.
When my ship comes in, I'm on it.
