Portrait for roovyn

Here comes Rico!
When I was on the Pacific Swift last summer on trip one, my watch officer Drew was dressing up in a crazy costume sometimes for bunk judging and calling himself ´Rico´
Now, at the beginning of the trip Drew had told everyone that if we had brought a stuffed animal, we were to display it proudly on our bunks when inspection occured. I had made this rather odd looking stuffie out of a toe sock, with wide green lips and white eyes, so I left it on my bunk.
Drew, dressed a Rico came onto deck to tell us who had one that night and interigate anyone who´s bunk seemed off.
"Who is # 14?" he said
I stuck up my hand , "Oh that´s me."
"I see. Now, that little monster on your bunk, that is the most frightening thing I have ever seen! Minus 5000 points!"

All the girls protested loudly, and the guys thought it was the funniest thing ever to happen, and that I had to bring this monster I had made to Mug-up because they all wanted to see it.

Did he really dock us points? I have no idea~ But I did leave it out the next time Rico showed up for inspection!

Great story!

Please tell me you have a photo of the little monster you can share? It would be both interesting and probably shocking to see something worth a 5000 point drop! Certainly sounds "unique" anyway :)
