Its funny how one second I can be here (well, as here as I ever am), and the next I'm 1000 miles away, but I can see it, hear it, feel it as as if I'm really there. I had one of those silly flashbacks for no reason today. I'm not sure what brought on the memory, a word or a sound maybe, but I could instantly picture myself in another time and place entirely. After dinner, we would go down to the comedy club on the ship's little district of nightclubs. We were still dressed up from dinner, and in great moods, because hey, how can you not be in a great mood when you've spent your day sleeping in, then relaxing on a tropical island, seeing a show, being served dinner by a very attractive Greek waitor, and then going out to a club? We sat at a table near the back of the room, sipping fruity drinks, and laughing at the show put on by a great group of improv actors. Carefree is the word that comes to mind. I hear the club is gone now, although I'm sure that the sunburned, overdressed people sipping fruity drinks still remain. I'd love to be there.
