Bee and Charlie

This is the completed Story Game of "Bee and Charlie" that you all did an outstanding job in authoring. For those that may not know these are two of my blogging buddies; Empress Bee (Of the High Sea) at Muffin 53, and her hubby Sarge Charlie of Sarge Charlie. Hubby and I had the pleasure of going on a cruise with them on the Carnival Glory this past February, along with some other wonderful bloggers.

The one thing that's always a constant in all these story games, is that someone always mentions cake. This one is really about lots of cake, cruising, pie and Lima beans. Enjoy your Story Game:

Bee and Charlie are getting ready for another cruise, but there's one problem they must address before their cruise. They both suffer from a rare disease known as Chronic Ocean Wave Syndrome (COWS), and have run out of COWS pills, but they wouldn't let a little thing like COWS keep them from their plans to sail the ocean blue! So, they called their Doctor, Dr. Green, who insisted that they contact Dr. Purple who had an abundant supply of little pink COW pills.

As luck would have it, those little pink COWS pills were actually CAKE! Miss Bee had an honest-to-goodness prescription to eat CAKE! Every day, several times a day! Unfortunately, before they could fill their prescriptions they both had to hop on their scooters and scoot over to the gym. Too much cake and they won't fit into their lovely new cruise wardrobe.

When they arrived at the gym, they were surprised to find all their blogger buddies in the pool doing water aerobics. Everyone was bobbing up and down and to and fro when all of a sudden it started to storm and the captain announced everyone needed to go into the dinning hall, after they all arrived in the dinning area the announcement came over the public address system, "Everybody out of the pool".

Bee said, "I'm in the mood for some cake." Charlie said, "I'm in the mood for poker! you go eat more cake while i play cards, and then we'll meet in the dining room for more cake. Maybe some ice cream too. What do you think?

Bee had other ideas, and her plan involved more than cake. She's had cake, plenty of it, this time she would take a walk on the wild side. This time, This Time, She wanted pie. Bee wanted pie, but not any old pie. The pie had to be a Steak and Guinness Pie. The problem was and it was major problem there wasn't any Guinness aboard the ship and they wouldn't be arriving in port for another 48 hours!

So Bee visited the captain and demanded a private meeting to see what he could do to improve the situation. The captain brought her to the lower deck and pulled a small valise out of a hidden wall. Bee's eyes lit up as she squealed , Oh Captain Morgan, You truly mean that I can cruise on Carnival for FREE for life with Sarge by my side?!!! There was a catch though, she and Sarge were never to eat cake again.

"Never eat cake again!? Then surely I will fall ill with a horrible case of Stripes!
So it was call Camila Cream and have her make some of her famous Lima bean PIE. Wouldn't you know there weren't any Lima beans on-board. That was where those forgotten scooters could come in handy looking for stashes of Lima beans and throwing them overboard! Sarge and Miss Bee love sailing but not with a horrible case of Stripes. And not without cake either.

Just then Carnival's senior cruise director John Heald came to the rescue. He promised that he would make sure that Bee and Charlie got all the cake during their free cruises and no one would know but them. He would have the pastry chef disguise their dessert to look like something other than cake and no one would be the wiser. John Heald always takes care of Bee and Sarge. Always. He also gave both of them a slice of Lima bean PIE to make sure they would never have a horrible case of the Stripes. Now don't you just love a happy ending? I do too.
