Woman Enough

She Who is Yet to be Named!

On Monday of this week, when I met Elias for lunch on Mama Tried, as per usual, he was jittery.

“I’m really nervous,” he said.

I had to pick at him in a couple different ways, but eventually he admitted that he’d seen a boat he really liked on Craigslist, and he’d sent the owner an email.

“Why are you nervous?” I asked, because even for someone as gifted at anxiety as I am, this doesn’t really make the cut for sweaty armpits and jittery feet.

“Because, what if someone else emailed him first? What if it’s gone?”

This is how paramount the search for the next boat; one we want but not one we really need, has become to my dear, rational partner.

No one got there first, and the following day we were aboard the boat, a tough little Allied Seawind 30 in South Portland, and the next morning we committed to buying her.

So may I introduce the newest addition to the Mama Tried tribe:

All details are yet to be determined, but we are, at this moment, full of the usual daydreams that accompany possibility.

And you know what? She has RADAR!
