This is after 280 days straight at sea no port..

Mind you - cooks are you best friends. They are rumor central, they know the crew, and most importantly they know you...

Said watch - getting coffee - within 5 minutes the COB is relieved of duty and on medical watch. Someone that got POED on his - ahem - I have to take it on the crew - laced his coffee with visine which is and oh my gawd - makes you piss out your arse like faster than a Kentucky derby winner...

Just keep that in mind...
Just fyi, Visine is tetrahydrozaline, a deadly poison. It is covered in "Outdoor Emergency Care". The old bartender trick to get rid of a patron, is dangerous.
