Excuses for missing school and work are being formulated as I write this. Let's face it, if you want to be a hardcore surfer in these parts, you better know how to BS your boss, teacher, girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband and your parents. Lying is important when it comes to surfing in New England. We can't count on there being surf everyday, so when we do get it, we have to make room for it. That means we need to think on our feet. Make quick decisions and basically come up with a believable lie.
just better be careful not to use the same lie as your coworker or fellow
student. Nothing worse than crossover lies getting in your way. Work together
when you hatch some harebrained BS story on why you can't go to school
or show up for work. Like maybe you use the current TB scare that's
freaking the whole country out. Tell your boss or teacher, that you think
you and your buddies may have come in contact with that dude who has TB,
and you're going to have yourself checked out. You know, you don't want
to risk getting the class, or the office all be exposed. Tell them not
to worry, that you more than likely don't have TB, but you thought,
better safe than sorry.
you saw the surf before I showed up?" I asked him. "I did, I
saw the surf and was bumming..." he answered. "Let me get this
straight, you saw the surf before I did, and you're mad, that I didn't
call you, to tell you there was surf?" "That's right" he
Well I do hope that you all get some waves this week. In fact, I hope the swell sticks around right through the weekend. There's the first NNE district contest of the season slated for the weekend and it would be nice for them to start off with a bang. The beauty of running these local contests is that Lenny and Arlene can be a bit more flexible when it comes to running a contest or postponing one. Because the contestants all live locally there's no real hassle in moving them around. As long as they get in at least 4 for the summer, they should be OK.
I want to thank everyone who wrote me about last week's Memorial Day column. I do appreciate it and I am equally pleased that you all get what the day is all about.
I see that we have foiled another Terrorist attempt at blowing up JFK Airport and ultimately a significant number of innocent civilians in New York. Once again, it was radical Muslim extremists, hell bent on destroying America and Americans. Anyone who does not think we are in a Global War On Terrorism is living in a make believe world. And anyone who does not think that this affects surfers is equally clueless.
Terrorists hate you, as much as they hate me. In fact, Terrorists hate the left thinking members of our society way more than they hate moderates and conservatives. Surely you can agree with that? And a terrorist is a terrorist. No matter where they live. I once said that Terrorists are like cancer. You may not see them, but you know they are out there. And you can do one of two things. You can ignore them and hope they go away. Or you can aggressively go after them and destroy them. Because if you don't, they will certainly kill you.
just had two instances within the last few months to prove that. The
Fort Dix foiled mission and this weekend's JFK airport
foiled plans. My friends, we need to come together as a nation and combat
these evil sons of bitches who are trying to destroy us. This attempt
at blowing up JFK was going to worse than 9-11...are you
forget. The Fund for the Late Surfer Danny Miller's young son can be
made to The Landon Miller Fund through ANY Citizen Bank.
my friends...Surfing heals all wounds....
