The morning after the night before

Light was peering through the curtains. The King has a headache. “morning my dearest” says the Queen. “How are you feeling today?”

“Awful; I feel BLOODY AWFUL! How much did I drink?”

” You were doing really well until Captain Bell turned up with his rum, can you even remember?”.

“You do know that you arranged for us all to go whaling on captain Bells new ship – The Shalapoon” . The Queen said in disgust.

“Not really” said the King, I’ll send a message to the captain informing him I changed my mind and that I’ve too many other engagements”

The Queen said “Well actually thinking about the conversation, it’s not as simple as that my dear”. You said and I quote you word for word!…

“I’m cancelling all my engagements for the next two weeks, that should give us plenty of time. We’ll meet at the ship in the morning…

As God is my judge and you here present as my witness – I will contribute to your crew with my servants, plus I’ll fund the voyage.” “We as a family are detached from our Kingdom and need to learn what real life is all about.”

“So you see my dear, you can not cancel!”

The King put his head into his hands shaking it in disbelief at what he had said.
