Cruising – by Hugh W. Roberts

While sitting outside on the most oversized balcony of the cruise ship, sipping gin and tonics served in fishbowls, Petunia and Fred didn’t have a care in the world.

“What’s the name of that city, Fred?” asked Petunia, pointing towards the high-rise buildings along the shoreline.

As the cruise ship sailed off the edge of the world, Petunia never got to take another sip from the fishbowl she held, nor got an answer to her question.

    1. But gone where Cathy? Maybe the first passenger flight to Mars will reveal an answer? Apparently, that’s going to happen in 2024. Better book our tickets. If we book this far in advance, I’m sure we’ll get a discount.

        1. I know. I’ve come across them a few times in the blogging world. They also believe that what we see in the sky is all projected from a secret source on Earth. This also includes the nighttime sky.

          Thanks for linking back to this post. I’m glad it gave you some inspiration.
