Sorry Mom if you are embarrassed that I am quoting you for the whole wide web to see, but the irony was just too much.
Yesterday being my birthday, I got an email from home containing the following excerpt:
Dad told me you were having a BBQ with lots of friends on the beach. Glad you stayed out of the water… don’t need any shark stories in your blog! 🙂
While at the beach for said birthday BBQ, we also received rumors of the following true news story developing on another beach about 45 mins away:
The headline is: “Shark rips off surfer’s leg”
I’ll let your imaginations or French skills tell you the rest of the story.
Update and side note, I am using the word “ironic” now because of my new ironic hipster moustache. Photos to follow.
