Sometimes life happens when you're making plans to enjoy it. So Avocados From Mexico came up with some ways to make the most of Cinco de Mayo, no matter where Cinco takes you.
Hello and welcome aboard the SS Nautilus! This is your captain speaking.
Aboard the SS Nautilus, you will find adventure. You will find your sea legs. You will find a true sailor’s heart. You will find depths of your soul you never knew existed. You will find Jimmy’s smelly socks in your bunk, because he always loses them. Don’t worry about them. Just throw them overboard!
That reminds me: safety rules. You should never actually throw things overboard. Especially not people.
Now, if my charts are correct — which, of course, they are! — we’ll be arriving at our island destination on the best day of the year: Cinco de Mayo!
As you can see, we are currently going … east. Eastish. Sort of like a north, east-south direction. You don’t have to be too precise about it. The sea will take you where she pleases!
The first thing you need to know about being lost at sea — not that we’re lost — is how to keep a happy crew. That’s why I decided to bring us ashore on May 5, so we can throw a proper Cinco de Mayo party. It’s that kind of attention to detail that makes me the best captain ever and allows me to ignore other details like the barometer and objects in our path, like that ship, which I’m sure will just go around us.
May 5, Cinco de Mayo party day: Day 144 on the SS Nautilus. Speed: 4 knots. Weather: Cloudyish. Probably fine. Sails: up. Crew is getting restive. Suspect mutiny. Some crew think we are lost. Definitely not lost. Definitely still going eastish.
Plus, who cares if we are not technically on land yet? It’s the day everyone’s been waiting for. Where there’s guacamole made from Avocados From Mexico, there’s Cinco.
And being the good captain that you are, you’ve got secret rations to get them back on your side. Here’s what you do:
Everyone will make it to land eventually. Until then, it’s a Cinco de Mayo party aboard the SS Nautilus. That’s not so bad, right?
