I remember when I first signed up to Tumblr, one of my first asks was “What is your favourite ship?”.
I hadn’t really thought about it so I went and read up on a few ships, vessels, a few wrecks etc and found it very interesting! Finally after much deliberation, my reply was “Tugboat Rozi” because of how cute the name was and how it housed so many sea creatures!
The anon response came “No need to be sarcastic, Bitch”. I was so confused that I deleted the ask and it took about 3 months for me to realise that ‘ships’ wasn’t referring to boats…
And that was my first experience with shippers.
