Day 6 of ? – A Day of Firsts

5 Mar

Today marks a bunch of firsts for me for this trip:

first time I’ve been off the boat since I arrived (you landies are a real strange bunch)
first proper shower I’ve taken since I left home (I coulda stayed in there for hours) and
first non-homecooked and non-vegetarian meal eaten since I got on the boat

I want to take some time to discuss this last one.

Diana (Happy Birthday!) has been making the most amazing meals. She recently turned to the light side and became vegetarian, but that’s not stopping her. No-siri-bob. So for the past five days I’ve been eating delicious, high-quality, healthful, professionally-prepared meals three times a day. I can’t remember the last time I’ve gone more than one day (let alone five) with a traditional three squares. I feel good.

But even more interesting is that there are no sugared drinks on board. I’ve been drinking only water for five days straight. I can’t remember the last time something like this happened. Oh, wait. I yes can. It’s NEVER!

I wish I could say that you don’t need fancy drinks with flavour to enjoy life but I just had a beer with my meal at this restaurant and I was all like “Fill it up again! Fill it up again! Once it hits your lips, it’s so good!”


It really is.
