Anyway, on to the fun! Back in October, on my birthday, no less, my sister-in-law told me about the great idea she had.
SIL: I thought it would be so cute if we all wore matching Levine Family Cruise t-shirts on the first day of the cruise.
Me: *crickets chirping*
SIL: I talked to our mother-in-law and she loves the idea. Would you and Matt wear the t-shirts?
Me: Um. No? I mean, what kind of t-shirts? Are they going to be like the crappy cotton ones we get at charity races? Or will they be nicer ones?
SIL: No, the cotton cheap ones.
Me: But YOU hate those! You're always complaining about them and rolling up the sleeves because they don't fit.
SIL: Well, I just thought it would be cute for all of us to match.
Me: I really don't think that Matt will go for this. In fact, I can say in confidence that no, he won't. And I'm not a huge fan, either.
SIL: Ok, well talk to him about it.
Later that night, after explaining the situation to the husband...
Husband: Hell no! What the hell? Is this a family reunion for 40 people or 6 adults and 2 kids on a boat?
Me: 6 adults and 2 kids on a boat.
Husband: Yeah. Hell. No.
I heard nothing else about the shirts for months, but then my husband mentioned that he had brought it up to his mother. Apparently she said, "FINE. If you don't want to wear them, don't wear them." [Enter Jewish Mother Guilt here]. So he thinks we're screwed and will be wearing the shirts.
I have yet to hear anything more, but if I do end up in a family vacation t-shirt, I promise to post a picture of it.
Anyway, since this is a book blog, here are the books I plan on reading on my cruise:
Be Careful What You Wish For
Midnight To Sunrise
William & Lucy
Visions Of The Revolution
Be prepared for reviews! And hopefully (if I can figure it out) a vlog from either the ship or the Bahamas!
