There’s a commercial that has been running too much lately. It’s an ad for Princess Cruises that seems to promise that you can make a relationship new by experiencing new things on a cruise. This commercial makes my eyes roll and my imagination run. I am always thinking up ridiculous new things about a relationship that could be discovered as a result of a cruise.
And so, as M was singing “The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers in between bites of bar-b-cue last weekend, I was really surprised that he, a city boy, knew any country song word-for-word.
As he boasted that he knew the whole album, I muttered: I must be on a Princess Cruise.
