“I have a proposition for you.”

Phone calls that start like that rarely end up any good. And since it was Joy on the other end of the line, I was betting my half of the proposition would be fixing her computer.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

“What’s up?” I asked. She caught me at a good moment.

“Well, you know me and Darnell are going on that next year…”

(For those of you just joining, my sister’s name is not really Joy. But if you watch My Name is Earl, Joy is my sister. Minus the white trash part. But the attitude, oh yeah, that’s all her. And since we are sticking with the My Name is Earl motif, Joy’s hubby will be referred to as Darnell from here on in).

“Oh yeah, I forgot all about that,” I said. I actually never remembered it at all. So it was kind of truthful. I figured the next question would be if I would check up on the animals when I was fixing her computer.

Wrong again.

“Well, do you want to go?”

“What? Where? On the cruise?”

“Yeah. Dad really wants to go. And mom won’t fly.”

“Sure, I’ll go. How much is it?”

“Your half will be about $450,” she said. “And that includes airfare.”

“For how long?”

“Six days, five nights. It leaves Ft. Lauderdale, goes to Belize and Cozumel, and back to Fort Lauderdale.”

“Is it all inclusive?” I was having flashbacks to Jamaica (here and here).

“Yes. Except for alcohol.”

“Damn. Okay. I’ll only drink what’s free.”

When I got off the phone, I did a quick check on what to expect from Belize and Cozumel, and I saw that El Castillo is there.


Now that looks pretty bad ass. From the tour website:

“This 135-foot structure is one of the tallest Mayan structures in Belize. From the top, you can see the Peten Forest, the Mayan Mountains and even across the border into Guatemala.”

I sure as hell hope it has an elevator.

  • Damn. You get to go to all the cool places. I hate you for that.

    That said, if you need me to check up on the pooch, let me know.

  • That’s an amazing price. Enjoy!

    That’s so funny that you should mention the “Peten Forest” because I was reading that info out loud to your mom and dad, who just happened to be at my home… and I said, “you can see Peter Pan.” Now that is cool. I quickly realized though that is not what it read. Well that and your mother screamed at me, ” Yeah dumbass , you’re going to see Fucking Peter Pan.” Anywho.

    Woah, you’ve gone from 1 post in a month to like 5 in two weeks! Jesus, work on your consistency, bitch! You’re like my crapping schedule when I was eating fast food all the time.

  • Ryabubuka

    Cool — those gay cruises are awesome!!!

  • So if your sister is Joy, and your brother-in-law is Darnell, does that mean your nephew is Earl Jr.?

    And you’re Randy, right? Nice!

  • It is nice to know that you are propositioned for things that don’t require compromising your moral integrity.

  • Hey, Crabman. 😆

  • Freak, YES PLEASE. I’ll bring you back some Mexican sand. That is not code for drugs.

    Snooze, thank you, I’ll try. And being cheap myself, I couldn’t be happier with the price.

    Joy, :lol:. It was easy to envision that.

    aric, please learn to count. it’s 6 in 6 days. And please try to update yours. I’m trying to set an example, here. :shake: 😆

    Lesley, as we discussed, Joy is my sister and my brother-in-law is Darnell. But that does not make me Randy because Randy is Earl’s brother and Earl was married to Joy. We are not from West Virginia. That said, I think Randy is funny, so I’ll take it as a compliment. 😆

    Jared, exactly.

    Mitch, :lol:, I’m gonna start calling Joy’s husband that. 😆

  • OH!

    Ryabubuka, it seems like you have experience with the gay cruises and their awesomeness. Any suggestions? :bff:

  • Oh snap! He’s gonna love it. :yay:
