Write something to do with: celebrity.
It rained on us for most of the local harvest this morning. I was not impressed, especially with the world still moving randomly (dear body: we're on land now) and a migraine coming on. But we got 'er done.
Oh, here's a picture of the lake I mentioned yesterday:
We really had no idea it was that big when we started hiking around it. Elsewhere, here's Kat and I posing in front of a waterfall by the Mendenhall Glacier, just outside Juneau:
I'll share a few more randomly selected photos tomorrow.
So by the end of day three of our trip, Kat and I were cruise ship celebrities.
You see, on day two they announced they'd be doing something called The Marriage Game the following night - ideally with one couple that had been together for a long time, one that was as close to newlywed as possible, and one somewhere in the middle.
Kat and I decided to be the newlyweds and showed up at the on-board theatre in the hopes of being picked. We were, so they brought us up on stage with the two other couples and we answered a bunch of questions separately and were able to match up on most of them. We ended up tying for first, and had a pretty good time of it, too.
We thought that would be the end of it.
The first time we were recognized was about two hours after the show. Fair enough.
The next day we were stopped two or three times. About the same the day after that. We had not bargained on this happening.
But we weren't the only ones.
On the fifth night I ran into the husband of the other winning couple in one of the many men's rooms on the ship. We preceded to have the following conversation:
"Are you guys getting it too?" he asked as we washed our hands at the sink.
"Oh good, it's not just us."
"Everywhere we go."
I found that rather comforting.
