Why in all that is right angled

“Why in all that is right angled did they send me on a long sea voyage during the Squared Week fast?” Elim moaned.

He clutched the railing for strength and stability. He did not know what was going to kill him first, the sea sickness, or the pounding head ache.

How long was the trip from Cape Town to New Babbage?

Father Calculus did not mention the length or breathe of the journey.
Father Calculus just handed him his suitcase, raised his hand, and uttered.
“Live long division and prosper.”

Elim closed his eyes.
“It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.”
The only thing set into motion was his stomach as he leaned over the rail of the rocking ship.

One of the ship’s crew passed by him and said.
“Have a good evening, Sir.”

“Live long division and prosper.”
Elim muttered with a wave of his hand.

He rubbed his temples.
“I still don’t know what that means.”

    Sea sickness and the fast. That is like vacationing in Bump.

    I avoid traveling by water as much as possible. Good luck. I hope you make it to New Babbage.

    Brother Elim walked the streets of New Babbage. He had recovered enough from the sea sickness, but the fast continued. His arrival to town started by being carted off the ship to the sickbed. He had been attended to, but no one really spoke.

    “It must be the fast.”
