***As promised, these emails were snagged off the virtual server of Brent’s sailing vessel and are presented to you one per day. Who’s Brent you ask? He’s our Love Boat Bachelor, and you can read about his daily exploits at Write Integrity Press! Don’t miss a day of his romantic adventure!
You have a lot of explaining to do. It’s one thing to wrangle me into two weeks of “get away” time, but caging me on this floating matrimony trap? What were you thinking, Sis? I wasn’t on the deck five minutes before some painted female started hitting on me.
I have a feeling you’re going to be delighted that I’m getting so much female attention, but I can tell you right now this thing is going to backfire. I’m already so disgusted with the female persuasion and I’ve only sat through one dinner so far. And a desperately uncomfortable meal that was. I swear, I don’t know how Danny can keep the smile on his face. He actually seems to be enjoying himself. I think he’s insane, and also tailor-made for this job.
Me, not so much! I’m required to stay in the public areas as much as possible, but this white costume they have me wearing is like a magnet. I had one tipsy woman stop me just after dinner and start confessing her sins. I explained that I wasn’t a priest, but she didn’t mind. And with loud voice she used, it was obvious that she wasn’t confessing nearly as much as she was bragging.
I can’t imagine two weeks of this. If anything, I’m going to get a lot of reading done in my “office” and figure out ways to dodge the tentacles of these women.
I can’t believe you did this to me.
Your not-so-loving brother, for now anyway,
P.S. I do admit that this ship is something like a floating city. I’m hoping the stormy waves settle down soon so I can do some exploring without carrying around an empty baggie – just in case.
