A Princess On The USS Rhode Island
Guest Poster: Karena
"Isn't it exciting, honeybunch?" my hubby and Life Servant Wesley says to me, "We are actually having a princess on board the USS Rhode Island."
This irritates me somewhat.
"In case you forgot, pumpkin." I reply sharply, "There is already a princess on board. I am a princess of the amazons on the planet Wondawowman."
"Err..well, yes." Wes hurriedly answers, "What I meant was besides yourself. We are escorting the Princess Talia to her home planet of Qualena."
"I don't like her." I tell Wes, "She does not behave how a princess should. She is rude and shouts at people. Besides that, Commander Hathaway is paying far too much attention to her."
"You're right there, Karena." concedes Wes, "But the Commander pay attention to any woman on ship. I know you had to use your spear to fend him off when you first came on board. Still, as a princess, you ought to talk to her."
"Perhaps you are right, pumpkin." I say, "Let's go to Talia's quarters and talk to her. As a princess, she will welcome my company."
The two of us walk towards the VIP area, and enter her room. We find Talia and Commander Hathaway in a very compromising position.
"What is going on?" I ask, although from the image I can see in front of me, it's very clear.
"Steady on, Ensign Karena." Hathaway says to me, "It's not what you think it is."
What an old adage. It IS what I think it is!
"The Commander is doing me a favour." explains Talia, "On my world, all people are created artificially in laboratories. We have no concept of love. When I said this to the Commander, he offered to show me what love is."
"This is against regulations!" I say, gripping my spear firmly, "I must report this to Captain Hernandez."
"Ensign." Hathaway tells me, in a pleading voice, "Please do not. I know it was wrong, but she IS a princess, and she did want to know. No harm has been done."
Wes and I consider this.
"Honeybunch." Wes whispers, "Just remember that if we ever get in trouble, and the Commander is about to reprimand us, we could just say Talia and he'll back down."
I consider this. Wesley may be smarter than he looks.
"Very well, Commander." I say, as if I am the Captain, "I'll overlook it this time."
Hathaway looks annoyed, as he knows he will owe us one for this.
Wesley and I walk away from this back to our quarters.
"Well done, pumpkin." I say to him with a smile.
Mimi Pencilskirt has imposed this meme on me, in which I have to write ten honest things about myself.
1: I love foreign language movies, my favourite being The Lives Of Others.
2: I love bacon, eggs, mushroom, fried bread etc.
3: I do my best to finish a book, and it is very rare when I give up on one.
4: I never watch movies with Hugh Grant in.
5: I also never watch anything with Ricky Gervais in.
6: I do my best to remember the words to American Pie.
7: I like spiders and snakes, or anything in the reptile house in a zoo.
8: If I'm not sure I've done something, like set the tv recorder, I have to come down at night and check, otherwise I won't sleep.
9: I can't sleep on trains or planes.
10: I dislike any Indian food. It makes me very ill.
At this point I'm supposed to name seven blogs outstanding for content and design and impose this meme on them. However, I will ask that if anyone wishes to do it, please do, and let me know.
