Default I need a cabin mate! My treat!

I've been given a cruise to the South Pacific for my 50th birthday aboard the Tahitian Princess sailing January 9th for 10 days. It leaves and returns from Papeete and goes to (my most desired trip) Raratonga, Cook Islands, Bora Bora, and Moorea. Mrs. Thomas has decided she doesn't want to fly over that much water to get to the ship and told me to find someone else. The air is from Jacksonville, Fla. and it's paid for too.

If you would like to go on this cruise, all expenses paid, from Jacksonville, Fl. (except for your personal purchases, I'll even cover the bar bill) let me know why you would be a good companion in 25 words or less.

Regards,
Thomas (not really, just want to hear how you'd sell yourself)

My reason would be the bar tab. That alone would be worth it. lol

I'll make you laugh
I'll make you smile
I'll rub your back for a while
At dinner time, if you'd like me to
I'll even cut your meat for you
I'll play cards with you out by the pool
I'll fetch you a drink that wet and cool
I'll dance or sing the night away
I'll mark your bingo cards by day
While we're waiting to watch the show
I'll save you seat while you "go"
I'll pack you luggage and set it in the hall
Wait with you to disembark till our color is called
You see I'd be the perfect mate
Pick me, pick me, I can hardly wait.

I could teach you how to be 50. Been there & done that. Need more cruises. I can run up a huge bar tab,(need more cruises) stink up your room with my cigars(need more cruises) & wear a thong bikini!!! (You don't want to go there!!!!!) Your problem is to convince DH of 35 years???? Great ploy Thomas. I really enjoy your sense of humor.

On a more serious note, I take it you are in the restaurant business in Fl. We will be at the Hilton in Cocoa Beach 4-16, sailing Mariner 4-17.Could you reccomend a good seafood place? Thanks & keep us laughing. jp

Borntocruise, try Jack Baker's for good seafood in Cocoa Beach. It's reasonably priced and fresh local catch.

Check them out at http://www.jackbakerslobstershanty.com

Thomas

I'm neat, fun, don't need much room, will remain cheerful (since you are paying the bar tab), don't snore, am not high maintenance, would call you "Your Highness" and fetch all your drinks from the bar, plus cheer real loud when you win at BJ.

Me, me, pick me.....
