Good gracious, Jon Scott! Perhaps I should have had a trigger warning for you related to my story — obviously, I had NO idea about your traumatic experience all those years ago!
I’ve been kicking around writing another story specifically about the inept boating we saw while on our trip. If it comforts at all, your father was not the only delusional sailor. The harbors across Greece are filled with them! (Though your poor dad seemed in a league of his own. I just sighed audibly.)
Anyhoo, as always you straddle the line of woeful, darkly funny, and unfailingly entertaining.
Thank you for participating in your own unique way, my friend!
I’m sorry that our schedules did not align this trip for a short visit and some Carpo chocolate. You know I’ll be back, though. In fact, I have some fairly big news to share on that front, but that will definitely go into a proper story. I’ll tag you once I write it but I’m in the middle of my big move and unsure of the exact timing of that story.
