Aside from Elenka, and a few pious others, many of us remember our younger days when we'd flop into bed at three or four in the morning after drinking pails of beer and then have to wake up by seven or so to get ready for work. The head would have that empty cotton batten feel to it; the mouth like a bird had nested in it; the legs all rubbery and weak.
Being at sea in rough conditions – except for the nest-in-mouth – isn't too far different
The dining room was almost empty when we went for breakfast at seven. The Oosterdam kitchen whips up a dandy waffle. And there's nothing like a couple of platefuls of eggs benedict to set you right after a night like that. By noon we were sailing along on a sea of glass, the sea hangover just a memory.
