Flash Fiction #146

I don’t want to go on a round-the-world cruise. By the time you get there, you’re back here.  Besides, it might pass perilously close to North Korea.

Still, it would be nice to get away from Trump for a while. The two most inflated things about The Donald are his ego, and his Twitter account. Those are the only things that I want “blown up.”  Are there any cruise ships without Wi-Fi?  It might be worth it to pay extra for some political peace and quiet.

Unlimited booze and food??! I’d come back with a figure like Frosty the Snowman.

    Already looking forward to the day we can go back to completely ignoring Trump.

    Snap, cruising is dangerous for the waist line.


  3. Dale says:

    I love cruising. And frankly, Wi-Fi is so expensive, I never take it….

      I haven’t gone cruising since gasoline was a dollar a gallon, and Main Street was lined with pretty girls.
      I just got conned into paying $3/mo. more to my internet provider for a ‘Bigger, Better, Faster, Clearer’ home Wi-Fi modem.

        Ha ha Ha!
        Don’t get me started on the bloody internet providers. My bill just mysteriously went up $3 without a hello. They called me and I said no. And yet…


  4. Crusing without wi-fi – without a phone – sounds heavenly.


  5. Sarah Ann says:

    Cruising is definitely a risk to the waistline, but for all those days without news of Trump, it might be worth the risk.


  6. I think there are places without any coverage… that’s where I have vacation.

      My son dealt with a man from Northern Ontario. His postal address was Rural Route #122. He said, “You drive out of town until the radio goes xxXxXX .” The only sounds were blackflies buzzing and wolves howling. I think he got his internet connection with a satellite Hot-Stick….or maybe delivered by dog-sled. 😉 😆
