My beautiful wife made a very interesting observation this morning. Whenever I forward her emails relating to my Grand Ocean-crossing Adventure, the boat name is in the subject line. The boat's name is Oceanaire.
A human mind, especially one as sharpened to prevailing culture as my wife's, does funny things. It relates one word to another and makes for some fun connections. And some somber ones. See, Heidi reads Oceanaire as Oceanic every time. And her mind jumps straight to Lost, the hit ABC drama. In case you don't watch the show, the airline that they were flying was Oceanic and the name plays a key role this season as they discuss the "Oceanic Six". And, eek, we're sailing Oceanaire with six crewmembers...the "Oceanaire Six".
I sure hope we don't get stranded on Hawaii when we get there.
