And now I must share with you all my greatest triump and failure of the cruise.
As we headed in the auditorium they were asking for volunteers for a men vs womens game. Figuring I'm smarter than the average bear I walk up to join my fellow testosterone driven brethen. When we arrive on stage they give us cards with a letter on them: S, P, O, T. The 4 guys get these letters the 4 gals get the same (I got P.)
SO just to set the game they give us a trial wort 'SPOT' and tell us to spell it out. I take the #2 'spot' next to 'S'. Seems simple enough but the girls have somehow failed to spell out spot and seems on there way to spelling 'L.O.S.E.'
Our next word was 'TOPS' Game is on and crackin now. Next word 'POTS' Yall see where this is going and so far we have won both of the challenges. Than we are thrown a curve...Spell opts. Once again I take the 2 spot behind O and we win. YEAH MEN! Than the host (a guy and girl) say to make this a little more challenging the next word wins regardless of previous score...Spell 'DOTS'?!?
The girls are looking at each other like 'wha' I order the O next to me followed by the T and S and turn my p 180 degress to make a d. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! We won In your face girly girl girl's. But that was only the 1st contest. The next contest we were given a spoon and a golf ball and told to walk not run around the auditorium with golfball in spoon in one hand our our other hand behind our head.
So we line up (Im 2nd) and off we go Into straight up hillarity. I love women...I love the way the women we competed against were dressed...I love women in high heels and short skirts trying to race around an auditorium carying a spoon and golf ball in one hand, the other hand behind their head and another hand trying to pull down the skirt. Oh and the high heels didn't even come into play. I swear some girls can play basketball in them and still get a triple double on ya.
We won this for one reason and one reason only...no girl kept there off hand behind there head so that kinda evened things up and as we came around with the last pair they where damn near neck and neck. As they made the turn to come down the ailse the girl was actually ahead of the guy...Until the golf ball fell off the spoon. This ball hit the ground like one of my tee shots hitting the cart path.
The ball bounced away from her and darn near to the other side of the room. Someone ran the ball back to her but it was too late. So we escape that contest by the skin of our manly teeth.
And now the final contest.
So we are lined up, again me in my 2 position. The host brings out 2 hula hoops. 1st one to drop hula hoop loses. We all look at each other crestfallen. So 1st dude and dudette go up against each other...Its actually close but she wins out. This was the girl with the highest of heels so we were kinda hoping she would go longer. Next me...the host ask would I like a practice go and I take it and fail. Now its live showtime.
We begin and it turns out I truly suck...but so does my opponate. She doesn't hula as long as me they ask the audience and they say its a tie for us to go again. GREAT I get to make a fool out of myself twice. We go again and my hula is the last to fall. Now understand this...Its not so much that I was able to hula just that I am a fat lard arse and it was just harder for the hula hoop to clear my belly and fall.
SO therefore WE the manly men won the battle of the sexes.
One of my fellow contestants his wife won the trivia contest later on.
Now you may be wondering 'frosty you said it was your greatest failure how is that?' I'll tell you how that is...All the time I was on stage and going thru the contestest I had the camera in my dang-gon pocket...Forgot to give it to my wife.
