9/27/10 NEPTUNE DAY EVENTS
Over the loudspeaker all polliwogs were told to report to deck 7. Once up there we listened to a speech and then they began to pour fish guts on our heads. Initially, I was not going to participate and after Emma and our RA did it, I decided why not? So I went up there and it smelled horrible, the local dump would have smelled like a rose garden in comparison. Over my head went the horrible mixture of fish guts, I ran from there to the pool and jumped in. Forgetting that the pool on the ship was salt water, and there was already a lot of fish guts in it from the people in front of me, I thought I was going to get sick! I hurried out of there and kissed a huge dead fish. I was really grossed out! Then I ran to kiss the king and queens ring. I was finally done and officially not a polliwog anymore. I am officially an Emerald Shellback.
