While eating guacamole and chips at a Mexican restaurant:
Me: "The Antarctica tour company cancelled all their 2009 trips. They realized that they can't fix up their new boat in time."
Tom: "They missed their ship date."
Me: "Ha ha. Anyway, it takes a lot of renovations to prepare the boat for Antarctic conditions. Their old boat, the MS Explorer, sank last November."
Tom: "Are you sure it's safe? Think about it -- they bought the new boat with the money they had left over from the first boat."
