Thanks you. See, I can be unkind to others besides Kate......she just seems to hog the spotlight lately.

So its just a cheap parlor trick.....and here I thought all of these other people were brilliant.

In the meantime, please keep the tales coming. I am sure it will help my mourning process.
Thanks....I'm glad you like it. I had hoped to have another chapter today.....but I guess it wasn't in the cards....just didn't have the right groove today. Tomorrow for sure though.....probably.

I can totally picture that too...that's just the kind of plushie he was.

Darn those statistics. DARN THEM!

Yes, he did. In both years of his life.

Standing in the middle of the street... surrounded by all those Christmas lights that one special family had lovingly collected over a life time....I kind of felt Pal Mickey slip his little hand into mine.....and that’s when I knew he would never really be gone.
This is both wildly hilarious and incredibly depressing at the same time.

Chpt 40 - Our final chance for Wishes

Ok....so it was the final morning of our final full day at WDW. I’m sure many of you never believed this day would come.....and I will completely understand if you need to take a moment to compose yourselves. However, even though you may be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.....it ain’t over yet. If you’ll recall, I was on chapter 15 by the time I finished up our first full day at WDW. I’m not saying…I’m just saying.

Just like on the previous day, we abandoned our carefully laid plans and decided to head to Epcot for the morning and then hop over to MK for the rest of the day....even though Tinkershell’s non-negotiable itinerary clearly showed us that the entire day was supposed to be at MK. Our kids were beginning to wonder if their parents had been abducted and replaced with spontaneous alien replicates. So what had gotten into us? Honestly, I don’t know. Ever since Pal Mickey’s disappearance, we’d been like a ship without a rudder. I guess he was our rock. It could be that Pal Mickey’s disappearance had taught us to live life to its fullest.......because you never knew which day would be your last. Or, maybe we just realized how much we had paid for the park hopper option on our tickets and were bound and determined to get our money's worth. In one scenario, we are wise and reflective.....and in the other were short-sighted and cheap. So you be the judge. But judge wisely....because you’ve been given a tremendous responsibility. In any event, as soon as we announced our decision to head for Epcot, the non-negotiable itinerary tendered its resignation and stormed out of the room in a huff. Don’t worry.....it’ll be back. That was like the third time it had quit in the last two days.

Anyway, as we exited the bus at Epcot, we were confronted with another early morning EMH. Nuts! See, this is why we don’t wing-it......because we stink at it. If only I had invested in that copy of “Winging it for dummies” when I had the chance. At the last minute, Pal Mickey had slipped it out of the shopping cart and replace it with “Picking up redheads for dummies”. Hmmmmm.....I wonder if that book came with a money back guarantee? I know one thing for sure, he never read the chapter on avoiding restraining orders.

Yup....we finally ran out of tie-dye mickeys


Since the park was already teeming with people, we knew there was no hope of riding Soarin’ in the stand-by line. Instead, Tinkershell and the kids were going to head for Mission Space while I hustled over to Soarin' for a set of fastpasses....for I am.....still.....the designated fastpass specialist. I briefly considered asking Tinkershell if she would be the designated fastpass specialist....since it was our last day, but she is what doctors call directionally challenged. I was afraid that we would point her in the direction of the Soarin' fastpass machines.....and she'd end up somewhere in the middle of Universal Studios Orlando.

At Mission Space, we all rode the green chicken-baby version....and I can’t remember why. It could be that the line for the orange version was ginormous and stretched out over the horizon......or possibly we wanted to make this into a special family bonding experience, akin to joining hands and singing Kumbaya around a roaring campfire.....or maybe....just maybe....Gary Sinise had visited me in a dream and warned me that something horrible was going to happen on the orange version that day. I just don't recall. In any event, we all rode the green. Afterwards, DS Buddy and I played Space Race in the big post-show area of Mission Space. You know, the one where you’re racing against another team to try to fix your ship. Unfortunately, we were placed on Team Triton....which turned out to be the biggest collection of bumbling losers that has ever graced the red planet....and we got spanked pretty good. To be honest, it could have been my fault. Pal Mickey used to be my wing man when I was collecting the different items....and I stunk without him.

After Mission Space, we wanted to get fastpasses for Test track...but we had about 12 minutes to burn before we were eligible to get another set. I volunteered to wait by the machines while the rest of the family went to Innoventions.....because I'm not a huge Innoventions fan....and believe me, that's an understatement. Now I realize that 12 minutes doesn't seem like a very long time.....but I swear to you there was something seriously wrong with the clock by Test Track. So the question is......why would Epcot rig their park clocks to run slow just to irritate me? Don’t ask me......I’m just the helpless victim. Anyway, after the Epcot version of "12 minutes"....which was probably closer to 30 minutes if you ask me.....I got into the shortest line available at the Test Track fastpass machines.....which immediately turned into the longest line.....because that’s my lot in life. When it was finally my turn.....I reached into my trusty fannypack (thaaaaaat’s right, I said fanny pack.......and I can’t believe you are still snickering at that after all these months) and pulled out three cards. Wait a tick.......three cards? I’m no math whiz.....but I’m fairly positive that I counted four members in our family...and three does not equal four....not even if you're using the new math that they’re teaching our kids these days. That’s when I remembered that Tinkershell had taken her card so that she could go get DS Buddy a soda from the refreshment cart. Nuts! That's why I treat those cards like I'm Kirstie Allie and they're the last slice of Jenny Craig triple chocolate cheesecake. Anyway, I had to high-tail it over to Innoventions to get the missing card.....and then high-tail it back to Test Track....and that about filled my high-tailing it qouta for the day.

With four fresh Test Track fastpasses safely in hand, I picked up the family at Innoventions and we all headed over to Soarin'. The last time we had been here, I had needed to use the restroom....and I took Pal Mickey in with me....because he was clutching his santa pants and hopping back and forth from one foot to the other. Inside, he explained that he didn't have to go.....he was just jumping around because he had a bug up his pant leg. Anyway, I didn’t want to place him on the floor....for obvious sanitary reasons.....so I had tucked him under my arm. Apparently, I squeezed his tummy a little too hard as I stepped up to the urinal.....because all of a sudden he started to give one of his multiple choice quizzes. So now I’m standing up to a wall of urinals with a bunch of strangers and Pal Mickey is asking me to squeeze his left hand if I think the answer is Snow White....or his right hand if I think it’s Sleeping Beauty. I tried to shush Pal Mickey....because this was hardly the proper venue for a multiple choice test involving Disney princesses....but once he started on a quiz he just couldn’t stop. There are many unwritten rules in life.....and near the top of the list for guys is the rule that there is to be no unnecessary chatter at the urinal. You might be allowed to speak if someone’s life hung in the balance....like if you noticed a large concrete block teetering above your neighbor’s head....but that’s about it......and even then you're dealing in a gray area. What could I do? I just stood there and finished my business in horrified silence.....although I'm almost positive I heard somebody whisper "try Sleeping Beauty" from one of the stalls.

Next up: Chpt 41 - Black Forest Cake for lunch.

I still can't believe you made him sleep in a drawer. I'm beginning to think he ran away to find a family who cosleeps.

Hang on to those precious memories...because they're all you've got now.

If Mickey wore Mickey ears, wouldn't that paradox create some major blip in the space-time continuum, and the earth implode as a result? I shudder to think of what else might happen...like cats and dogs sleeping together.

I echo my sentiments made about the whole drawer-sleeping arrangement.

Is there any chance Mickey sensed that this scenario was in his future? It may point to further clues that he left on his own.

So what does this look like to the folks in line? Are the three of you nothing but a colorful blur of rainbow shirts?

Hucifer is back! I find it very entertaining that you're scrambling to catch up and I just posted another chapter. Does life get any better than this? I submit that it does not.

As a vegetarian, this horrifies me.

Tinkershell ordered the filet with mushrooms...and I had the herb-encrusted prime rib. Both were delicious.....although mine was better by default.....because it wasn’t smothered in a vile spore-bearing fungus that you find growing in damp dark places.
Even as a vegetarian, I detest those slimy little boogers too.

We had just crossed over the bridge to France, when we started to see people standing in a giant line. Suckers! If they were smart like us.....they'd be holding reserved seating tickets...instead of bringing up the rear of the world's longest conga line of losers. We were still patting ourselves on the back when we arrived at the theater entrance... and were informed that the line we had just passed was for the reserved seating ticket holders. So we took the walk of shame all the way back to end of the line.....grabbed the hips of the loser ahead of us....and started to conga. Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, kick. Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, kick.
Been there, done that. If you had read my first trip report you would know that the same thing happened to us at Chef Mickey's.

Yeah, I'm scrambling. I see you've been a very busy boy.

And my trip was AMAZING. Lots of good stuff to write about...let's see if I have the time to write it.

First of all, you're mixing metaphors all over the place and I cannot keep track of your imagery. B), I'm glad your recent tragedy is teaching you a thing or two about appreciating life's pleasures. And third...never mind, too easy.

See, this is where I relate with the itinerary. It wasn't created in a few days, my friend. That thing was carefully crafted and sculpted and tweaked for weeks and weeks, maybe months. It was a living, breathing document until Tinkershell finally did the painstaking thing of stamping "FINAL" on it and carving it into stone. It's a long, laborious process. The final itinerary is to be respected and obeyed. And so it was written.

Which only further stresses my point that the itinerary is to be respected and obeyed.

You guys have weird urinal rules. If I saw a precariously dangling safe over the next chick's stall, and I would SO tell her.

Ok....I'll grant you, two years doesn't seem like much time to build up a deep love of Christmas lights.....but around our house they're up a lot longer than most....so he kind of got a crash course. Plus, I think it may have been part of his programming.

I didn't want to make him sleep in a drawer.....but he snored like a bugger......so when it got really bad, we'd just close it up. It was a perfectly logical solution to a complex problem. Would it have been easier if he weren't claustrophobic? Perhaps....but that was a price I was willing to pay.

We didn't even consider all of that....although I think you make some valid assumptions. We were just stumped by the logistics of it.

I can't be sure.....but I think that Pal Mickey was comfortable with the thoughts of his own mortality. Lets face it, they don't build things like they used to. In any event, I'm sure he would have at least left a note.

Well.....we were mostly just worried about Ariel. Although, Pal Mickey might have more self-control if she dressed a little more conservatively.

I've got a feeling it can't be pretty. All of those colors probably make more people sick than Mission Space.

A vegetarian that hates mushrooms. This concept fascinates me for some reason. I knew there was something inherently evil about mushrooms.

That sounded like a dare to me.....so I have in fact tracked down your first TR.....since you refuse to provide me with a handy hyperlink. Which leads me to my next question. Why hasn't anybody ever volunteered to set up neat little chapter links in my TR like Loubon did for you? Now I feel totally inferior.

First of all, I will see your mixed metephors comment....and raise you the space-time continuum reference that you made a couple of posts ago. Also (or B), I take great pride in learning nothing anymore....because a leopard can't change his stripes.....and lastly, I can't believe you judged me as short-sighted and cheap.

The final itinerary is to be respected and obeyed. And so it was written..
Believe me....I have seen the light....for I have witnessed first hand the tribulation that results from forsaking the itinerary. Never again, will I stray from the wise direction of careful planning....probably.

Any similarities between parts of this TR and Top Gun are purely coincidental.....especially the parts where I call Pal Mickey "Goose" and he refers to me as "Maverick".

And we look forward to hearing all about it in your upcoming TR.

Don't blame me.....I didn't write the unwritten rule. Also, with what you already know about guys.....is any of this really that suprising?

okay, you and Hucifer totally have to quit your tea party thing because you are wasting all your creative juices on one liners, and the rest of us are starting to feel left out. Since you still have probably 432 chapters left to go, we think you should get to it.
