Lately I have had several dreams about cruising (gee, I wonder why ;-). The dreams themselves aren't the same, but there is one aspect that always cracks me up. In my dreams you can pay a lot of money to park at the dock and walk on board the ship. If you aren't able to pay the expensive fee you have to swim a mile or two to get to the ship. Imagine people fully clothed, swimming with their floating luggage towards the massive cruise ship.
The thing that makes me laugh is that even in my dreams (where anything can happen) I am still cheap! I never pay the extra fee, I am always swimming to the boat.
