We brought Lucy on the cruise. She absolutely loved it. Not only did all of the NR Cruisers lavish attention and tickles on her, but the crew of the ship did as well. Most of them are Indonesian men and they leave their kids at home for at least a year at a time, so they all missed their own babies and subsequently doted on her like you wouldn’t believe (the fact that she’s cuter than a planeload of puppies certainly helped). Add to that the considerable affections of the O’Beirnes, the Ponnurus and Capanos and she thought she was the queen of the world (We did not imitate that scene from the Titanic, however).
But now she’s home and she’s in a sour mood. Why? She wants to go to the Lido Deck, damn it!
