I Need to Win the Lottery
See, I thought if I threw that idea out there, perhaps karma would allow this wish to come true. Of course, it might help if I actually played the lottery. I don't and I won't. And yet, I still hope to win.
Sunday's session at the home break was nowhere near as good as Saturday's session. That was to be expected. There were still some decent waves out there. Had I not surfed on Saturday, I probably would have raved about Sunday.
What I do remember is someone telling me that Bob now has 10 boards. Ten boards? How in the hell did Bob get 10 boards? See, Bob used to be our local bodyboarder. He was out there every day just like the rest of us were. He was, and is, part of the crew . . . except that he was on a bodyboard. For reasons I don't know, Bob decided to start surfing. That was less than a year ago. And this is why I was wondering how his quiver got so big! Well, I asked him if it was true that he had 10 boards. When he said yes, I made him explain himself. Bob said that when Clark Foam closed its doors, he went to a bunch of local shops and bought the best boards they had, thinking (like so many others) that it would soon be impossible to get a decent board at a decent price. Before I could ask ask how he could afford such purchases, he said something about a low interest credit card. Now I know why Bob has 10 boards.
Tyler's new shop is finally open. I went in today to get some wax. And what did I see there? A surfboard for $2000!!! WTF? Any thoughts I had about selling my Tyler are gone! I'll keep it even if I only surf it a few times a year.
