Stevie’s Serendipity

Of all the ridiculous scenarios Stevie Waldrop had gotten herself into, her current situation would be hard to beat. Perhaps she would never tell.

Who was she kidding? This would probably be one of those viral social media stories, leaked by her gossip thriving sister, who by now, knew that Stevie was stranded on the Spanish island of Mallorca. At 46 years old, Stevie would have never imagined herself calling her 78-year-old father, at home in Ohio to say, “Hey Daddy, I missed my cruise ship’s departure at one of the ports. I am stuck with only the small amount of cash in my fanny pack, my passport and wallet are on the ship. I got a hold of the cruise line and I have to wait two days for the next ship… could you wire me some money?”

Her father, ever the jokester, had sarcastically answered, “Who is this?”

Her mother had jumped on the line and reprimanded her about leaving the ship without her ID, her persistent tardiness, and a lack of sound judgment. Stevie had answered the accusations as if she were 9-years-old and missed the school bus again, “Yes, mama.”
