I’d been planning the perfect vacation for months, but then something fantastic happened!
I won a free cruise in a draw and I could take a companion along with me. Now the question arose, who should I ask? My best friend, my cousin who was so found of adventure or my wife who wasn’t keen on traveling at all but was insanely jealous when I went away and had a good time.
Time was short so I played it safe. I asked my wife if she wanted to go on a vacation to the Maldives with me. I was super clever and made it sound like more of a drudgery than a luxury vacation. Sadly she is a very intelligent woman and caught on to me from the start.
We were due to travel on there 28th of February, 2020. But fate intervened and all traveling by sea was suspended because of the covid-19 epidemic breakout. I was promised that they would give me another chance as soon as the company started sea cruises again.
I’m still waiting. And this time my wife has categorically told me that she isn’t willing to expose herself to the risk of getting sick so I can take anyone with me. I can’t wait……..
