Ah, riding the ferry! Nothing but sparkles of sunshine on the water and long, sweet line-ups to the indoor cafeteria for $12 paninis. Sounds like paradise, right? WRONG!
I hate to be the one to burst your bubble of bliss, but don’t you know that GIANTS are lurking in the shadowy caverns of the ferry hull, waiting until everyone returns to their vehicles to pounce? (Not that Giants ‘pounce’– they are too large and lumbering for that– but you get the idea. They are waiting to kill you while you are innocently waiting for the ferry to dock!)
Need proof? An actual, official warning sign from the vehicle deck on board BC Ferries:
One minute, the cars are safe and sound, parked within 12 inches of each other. The next minute, though? WHAMMO! Out pops a Giant, towering over the vehicles and waving a leg of wildebeest in rage! His torso is like a glowing furnace of fury! He’s even wearing red Oven Mitts of Doom!! Noooooooo!!! (Car #1 is lucky to escape, no? Even if that “escape” is straight into a watery grave from the not-yet-docked ferry.) I feel sorry for the people in Car #2, though. They are total goners… or at the very least, their windshield will get all greasy from the meat dribbles. Fact.
Is THAT how the windows get so dirty on the ferry!?
Now you know, Lisa… 😉
LOL! Love it. 🙂
Thanks, Robin. 🙂 I probably wouldn’t have even noticed the sign if it wasn’t for the informative graffiti.
Sparkles of sunshine on the water: love it. Great writing.
Thanks, ma! Looking forward to speaking with you later this morning. (I just got up.) xoxo
My husband (aka “The Kitchen Nazi”) needs the “oven mitts of doom!”
Haha, Laurie– he certainly does! I’m not sure if they come in normal human sizes, though. Maybe just XXXXXXL.
Over Mitts of Doom! Yess!! Love the humour of whoever de-faced that sign.
Me too! Always great to smile when you least expect it… like when waiting for the ferry to dock. 😉
I hope you weren’t in Car #2. That’s all I’m hoping, Dana…
Thank goodness, I wasn’t! (That’s the only reason why I was able to survive and tell this tale.)
Tee hee! 🙂
