Nothing big to report on today, but I just had to mention an incident that took place about an hour ago that has me smiling. On my way to the market for a few things, I stopped into a surf shop that was just next door. I’d never been in there before, but I thought maybe they would have a black pair of Reef flip-flops I needed. The shop was filled with skateboards, surfboards, body boards, and very colorful tropical sportswear and beachwear. The young man behind the counter, sporting a little blonde goatee and wearing his cap turned backward, smiled at me and asked if he could help me.
“Yes,” I said. “I need more wax for my surfboard.”
Without batting an eye, he pointed to a corner and said, “All our waxes are over there.” I started laughing and told him I was only kidding. I just needed some Reefs.
“Well, from the looks of you,” he said, “I thought you were serious.”
Gotta love that boy!
