One summer day, while on vacation down south, Ellie got it in her
head that we should go on a cruise again sometime soon. So, being Ellie,
she set to work on the computer, researching cruises in our price range
for Thanksgiving, New Years, and next summer. Jen and Em cheered her on.
At one point I suggested, "Maybe we don't have to go on a cruise. Maybe
we could rent a place somewhere warm and stay there and do all the fun
things you would do from a cruise, like shopping, kayaking, eating.
Jen looked right at me. "One word. Appomattox."
I'd had my trip.
