I had one of the most bizarre occurences happen to me last Friday, and it’s all eerily related to last week’s blog post, I Should Have My Eye on the Ocean. It centered around a day at the beach, and I referenced a line from the movie, Kindergarten cop “Kindergarten is like the ocean. Never turn your back on it.”
Let me digress for a moment to explain that I’ve established a pen-pal relationship with another blogger. Her blog is Reflections…by Kathy. Kathy and I have some kind of psychic connection. There have been more than one occasion where we post about the same topic. We always comment on each other’s blogs but sometimes a topic deserves a longer conversation and for that we resort to email.
The Kindergarten Cop quote was just such an occasion. I don’t recall her exact words but she wrote something to the effect, “You must have been thinking of me. I find it hard to take my eye off the ocean — even if I’m reading a book.”
Well, there I was at the beach Friday. Reading my book – not really that close to the surf when…….
See the wet sand. That’s where we were sitting. Notice the rogue wave encompassed nothing else.
I tossed my towel and my bag with camera and phone in it up to the dry sand but my sunglasses got left behind.
OK OK, I’m not dense. I get the message. I’m going to listen to Kathy, and the K-cop. From now on, I’ll read a sentence….check on the ocean…. read a sentence….check on the ocean.
Or maybe I’ll just stick to my local beach.
It’s on a lake.
