The Cynical Sailor and his Salty Sidekick

This writer The Cynical Sailor and his Salty Sidekick makes me laugh.

Purveyor. Don't you just love that word? It's kind a posh way of describing a person who sells or deals in particular goods. Not that we're posh in any way, shape or form. Far from it. Just take one look at our normal attire of ripped and stained clothes and you'll agree. But it's a fun word which will earn you 16 points in Scrabble, so we're sticking with it.

One day, we started dreaming of sailing away.
Well, actually Scott started dreaming of this whole sailing away thing first and then convinced (or is that brainwashed?) Ellen that this was a fabulous idea. Ellen had been dreaming of escaping the rat race and a sailboat seemed like a reasonable mode of transportation out of corporate la-la land. After all, what could go wrong? What was there to be scared of? {Spoiler alert - turns out there's plenty to be scared of. Like whales smashing your boat into smithereens, being eaten by a shark and decapitating your husband by accidentally gybing the boat. You can read all about it on the blog. Not that any of that stuff has happened to us...yet.}

Let's follow them and have a great laugh!
