Yesterday we took an all day snorkeling trip off of
Now Alex and Jessica did not win our hearts from the moment they woke us up. Oh no. Alex’s first words to Jessica outside of our room was “wow, flip flops, want them?” in regards to my shoes. As soon as they passed I sent Sean running outside to rescue my coveted Merrell flip flops.
Two hours later we were woken again, and this is when we learned our tormentors’ names. They returned to their room, fighting their way in. And they continued to fight for the next 6 hours. So since we were right next door and got to hear the whole thing, whether we wanted to or not, this is what happened: After they went to bed, Alex was hogging the bed. Jessica needed more room and asked (yelled) Alex to move over. Alex called Jessica a bad word. Jessica got out of bed, screaming at him, and left the room. Alex ran after her, screaming her name. Silence for a while. Then they return together to hash it out. Now apparently Alex was drunk and he does not remember calling Jessica a bad word. He says he got up to go to the bathroom, came back, and she was gone. Now Jessica cannot believe that he was THAT drunk that he cannot remember their fight. And that becomes the topic of the fight for the next 2-3 hours.
At I gave up. I told Sean if Alex would only listen to Jessica and apologize, this would all be over. Sean says Jessica just wants to be right. So I thought I would contemplate the two sides of this very serious situation while sitting outside our room. As I walked out the door, there was Alex! So I said “good morning Alex!” He seemed surprised I knew his name, even though everyone in Montezuma knew his name by now. He was walking down to the hammocks so he and Jessica could continue their fight.
A while later, as Sean and I were both sitting outside contemplating who was the victor, they came back to their room and had to walk by us. Alex just looked at his feet, but Jessica locked eyes with me and smirked. Okay girl, this is war! Sean and I decided to switch hotels, and after the decision was made, and we could hear Alex FINALLY able to sleep (we could hear him snoring) we began to pack. Do you know how much noise it takes to pack two very large backpacks? And Sean and I do hope I could hardly hear each other over that racket, so we had to speak up to hear each other. I do hope Alex and Jessica were able to get some sleep!
Later on after lunch we saw them again, and tried to do a stealth mission to get their picture for the blog. Alas it was not meant to be. Sleep well, Alex and Jessica, sleep well.
