I'll be your boat hand

Wouldn't it be something to work on a boat and explore the seas... I'd work as the chef maybe or the mechanic. I would wear sleeveless white shirts and be covered in grease, down in the depths with steam blowing out of pipes. And the captain would yell, "we need more power!", and I would hit one of the pipes with a monkey wrench and get more greasy and then the boat would go faster and I would chuckle to myself and say, "ah, she's still got some vigor eh!" If I was the chef I would probably joke around with the crew a lot and try to make gourmet dishes that would end up being funny. We'd all have a good laugh, and even though the crew would joke about the food, they really would enjoy it deep inside. Maybe one day...

Maybe you could sail to tahiti with Seth on his boat! You're both half jewish it would be a great pairing.

Stephen this is fantastic! And you should have a small exotic pet. Maybe something prosaic like a monkey, but why limit yourself there, you could do something really wild like a...lizard or something...I actually can't think of anything that great.

I'm glad someone else muses about this. Except in my daydreams I am the stow-away maiden that all the dirty sailors make derogatory remarks to, and I act offended but secretly it thrills me.
