Conversations with Calliope- Leaving on a Jet Plane

(Serenade of the Seas)

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. How are you today?
JOE: Having trouble concentrating on matters literary.
CALLIOPE: Why's that?
JOE: I'm leaving for a cruise on Friday and will have a chance to get away from my usual routine. I'm afraid my mind has already left.
CALLIOPE: Not surprising. It is rather exciting.
JOE: It is. I have been on a fair number of cruises before, but it's always a marvel for me to live aboard a floating town for week.
CALLIOPE: Will I hear from you while you are gone?
JOE: Probably not. If I can find a way to send a post I will, but no promises. It might be beyond my mortal powers.
CALLIOPE: I can't help you there. Muses are versed in inspiration but not technology.
JOE: I'm glad you understand.
CALLIOPE: Maybe I need a little break too.
JOE: Perhaps. If you do take one, say hello to the folks at Mt. Olympus for me. Talk with you on February 16 if not before.
