I may have mentioned a while back that I started a part-time job as a tour guide.
This past weekend, I went on a whale watching tour. From January to March in Okinawa, you can view humpback whales spray water, flip their tails, and roll around...
So, how did it go?
You know that first scene of the movie Saving Private Ryan? It's the scene where the soldiers are about to land on the shores of Normandy on D-Day and they are all sitting in the boats approaching their demise looking miserable and throwing up all over the place?
Yeah, that was sort of what the tour was like... huge swells, the boat rocking back and forth like a seesaw, people moaning, and children screaming, "I want to go home!"
But we did see whales and when I wasn't about to gag, they were certainly exciting to watch.
My favorite quotation of the day from a young kid- "If a whale were to attack me today, I would have to spend the rest of my life killing them."
Wow, did he really think the whales were going to leap up near the boat and snatch people off?
Aren't other people just so fascinating? Have you heard anything funny lately?
