...Once again, Captain Isa has had a rough time trying to find the crew so they can get to their next destination. The shiny neon lights and the ca-ching of the one-armed bandits everywhere in Las Vegas have been quite the distraction. Plus, the plane taking them back to the coast was delayed and delayed and delayed. Now, finally, back aboard the pirate ship, hasty sailing is required...
"Captain, are we going to get to Manchester in time?" "Aye Matey, we'll get there. It's only early afternoon there so we should arrive in time for tea." "Tea, Captain? Pirates don't drink tea. They drink rum and martinis." "Fine, then we'll be there in time for cocktails. Happy now?" "Aye, Captain! Cocktails!!!!!" And with that, the ship encounters favorable winds, arrives in Liverpool and makes dock. "Captain, how are we getting to Manchester? It's too far to walk." "The Mega Bus!!! Oh look, there's one now! Flag it down, Matey!" The bus comes to s screeching halt and the crew clammers in. "To Manchester, Driver and no stops!" "Ma'am, we have to make stops. We're a commuter bus." With that, the Captain takes the whell and the driver is forced to sit in the back with the luggage.
Arriving in Manchester, the crew disembarks the bus. The driver speeds away before the pirates could pay the fare with the poker chips they'd won in Vegas.Now to find the birthday girl in time for cocktails... "Captain, how are we going to find her?" "That's obvious, Matey! We head over to the Travel Companions Pub! We can always find her there." So, with compasses in hand, the Captain and crew head out towards the pub. As they get close, they do that voodoo they do so well...
My story is much to sad to be told
But practically everything leaves me totally cold
The only exception I know is the case
When I'm out on a quiet spree, fighting vainly the old ennui
Then I suddenly turn and see
Your fabulous face
I get no kick from champagne
Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all
So tell me why should it be true
That I get a kick out of you
Some like the perfume from Spain
I'm sure that if I took even one sniff
It would bore me terrifically too
But I get a kick out of you
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADAM MIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you are having a wonderful day (Feb. 4th) filled with family, friends, lots of cocktails and no medical stuff!!!! Leave the lab coat in the closet and enjoy!!!!!!!!!
...As the pub's patrons join in on the singing of old Cole Porter songs, Captain Isa wanders off to order another round...
