The Missing Tweets

I recently went on a cruise with my wife to celebrate 15 years of marriage. It was super fun. But I missed tweeting, because I was to far away from the internet to do anything. So I kept a memo on my phone that I called "The Missing Tweets" that captured my thoughts as I had them. This post captures what I would have tweeted if I had been able to tweet them:
  1. I think I like the Inspiration's deck plan better than Glory's.
  2. Boat feels bigger but only a little.
  3. I don't know if I'll be able to cruise again w/out a balcony.
  4. SUUUSHI!!! All you can eat! Can life get better?
  5. Curtis, where are you going?
  6. Curtis, where'd you go?
  7. Woah! Curtis, did you pass us and then get waay ahead? What are those lights up there that we aren't catching.
  8. Pretty blue water.
  9. Surrounded by blue water on all sides. It's only pretty b/c we're in a safe cocoon. The ocean is wilderness w/o this boat.
  10. I'm not as fascinated by the size of the boat this time around. But I should be.
  11. God bless margaritas - Cozumel
  12. Ughh. Too many margaritas.
  13. Not sleeping sucks.
  14. I miss internet access. Can't lookup the origins of "starboard" & "port"
  15. Wife & I watched two teenagers making out in hot tub. I wanted to knock on glass & give them thumbs up.
  16. Enjoying our dinner companions, Eric & Misty.
  17. I don't get singing & dancing shows. Was more interested in the gigantic sound board we sat behind.
  18. Watched a cool lightning show tonight from ship's bow. Then made out w/my wife.
  19. Weight gain! Possibly 10 lbs. Will only be certain when get back on same scale.
  20. Passed Curtis yesterday afternoon. This AM he's ahead of us. Did he pass us along same route or take quicker route?
  21. Raining on only *part* of boat.
NOTE: I did not, at the time, or now check that these would fit in the 140 char limit. But this is what I wrote down.

NOTE2: Curtis refers to my friend who happened to leave from the same port as we did on a different boat. We saw multiple Disney boats on our cruise. I just assumed all of them held my friend.

This was a cool idea. Too bad you can't be just a little disconnected.

3. We were comp'd an upgrade to a balcony room on the last cruise. I agree. It was my favorite part of the whole cruise.

9. Didn't think about that on my cruises... but it's true.

15. It's different when one of them is yours... and she's the girl

17. Totally on board with ya. On our last cruise, Jeanie went and I stayed in the cabin. Perfect!

18. :)

My point w/#15 was to embarrass the kids and get them thinking about the fact that they are out of control of who their audience is. And in doing so subtly suggest to them that prudence might be a better plan.
