Three years ago, on board the Costa Mediterranea, my wife and I really splurged and had gotten an aft suite with a good size balcony.
We had ordered room service, lit some candles and enjoyed a very nice supper of lobster tail with a bit of bubbly followed with a few chocolate covered strawberries. We relaxed for a while on the balcony under a sky of a million stars.
We had a Righteous Brothers' CD which we inserted in the machine. When they sang the song; "Unchanges Melody"....
"Oh, my love, my darling,
I've hungered for your touch,
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love"
We decide to slow waltz, belly to belly, on the balcony.
After the Righteous Brothers finished that song, my wife suggested I take a mattress from the bed and put it on the balcony. I didn't have to be asked twice. She said she wanted to slip into something more comfortable and went into the bathroom to change.
I removed the blanket from the bed and dragged the mattress on the balcony.
I than put the lights out and got ready for an evening of heavenly bliss. The only light we had was from the moon. When my wife appeared in a very skimpy red see-thru negligée, she came and laid down by my side.
Than, the phone rang and I woke up. My wife called to tell me that the bingo game was over and she was going to the Casino. It was like three o'clock in the afternoon.
Kuki, what else would you expect from a Maritimer?
