Re: Arrrrgggghhhhh! And I'm no Pirate!
Bad News it looks like you are Going to The Carnival if I was in The US I could send a Box of Hankies or Tissues however look on The other side as there will be plenty of time afterwards to go Fishing.
I can imagine what would happen if you were seen Fishing when you should have been elsewhere your credibility would be Shot to Ribbons.
Remember Grown Men Don't Cry with exceptions to circumstances like this one.
Also I hope your Team does well.
