The Food's Not That Bad

Ok, so it’s not exactly cruise ship quality, either, but it’s made by a food-service company and I’d say it’s well above average.

What I’d prefer, given my idea of cruise ship service, is something like this for breakfast: Individual check in, escort to a table by a steward who also pulls the chair out and places the napkin around me, decaf coffee served by yet another, pastry by a third, order and delivery by the waiter.

If a cruise ship can do this, why not a hospital?

Then we get down to room amenities and let’s compare that to our shipboard cabin. That’s our home away from home, but not in a hospital. What we need is a personal butler or maid, maybe a midnight snack, some real tea (not that hot water with a tea bag next to it) and things like that in general.

It would be good to have several music channels, non-repeating for at least 24-hours, with your own earphones to avoid the nurses chattering away very pleasantly at 2:00 in the morning.

This certainly would make the hospital stay somewhat more tolerable, if not definitely the local vacation spot. Not only that, but if the place had empty beds, it could advertise such in the paper as the “Staycation” of choice.

It's a hospital, not a cruise ship. Just make believe that you were in drydock.

Exit 318 and his buddy CJV.

CJ is currently out testing Mother Nature, but I know he won't mind me posting for him.
