the crossing

Crossing over windy Lake Michigan on the ferry at 40 miles an hour. The horizon heaves up and down like a teeter-totter. Melissa woozily gazes out a porthole and tries to steady herself. She knows now she should have listened to the safety movie offering 'Sea Sick Sodas' for sale at 'The Galley'. She also didn't listen to the nosey lady that sat next to us with her granddaughter and nodded emphatically. 'Get the soda,' she said....'you gotta drink it BEFORE you get sick'.
I drew the lady and took picture while Melissa stood looking out the porthole, refusing to hurl.
