Sharks!

i tried to get myself away from the driving and smog and craziness of the city so i decided to go to the beach, my favorite beach, which is just past malibu.

well, and i have been freaking out, so i will make this quick and less detailed as i would like to make it... but while swimming in the water, i noticed all of a sudden all of these fish suddenly coming toward me, they were your typical flying fish etc, so i could see them in the distance leaping out of the water and coming quickly toward me. the gulls were right behind them, and there was a general energy of extreme tension.

i was the only one in the water and decided to get out, so i started swimming as fast as i could, which took me about 2 minutes to get to shore cause tide was against me and i was far out into the ocean.

just as i see the fish and gulls etc reaching the point where i had just been, a coastguard or baywatch (minus pam and david) helicopter swoops down and is making this scary announcement: "every calmly but quickly get out of the water, there has been shark sightings in the area, every one please get out for your own safety" that was the basic message.

i looked out again and saw three fins and a dark red cloud forming while the fish kept flying and trying to get away. i freaked out, and left. i am now safely in my apartment and i just saw a report about it on the news. you are all lucky that i didn't become professoredible... yikes.

YIKES!! Glad you lived to tell about it. Seems that smog and driving and craziness aren't so bad, after all, huh?

GEEEZZZZZ! Sure am glad you can swim fast! I have only been to the ocean once and didn't go up past my knees.

Sweet Jesus!!! That is like a movie! I am so glad you are okay! I can't believe you actually saw fins! Please just stay out of the water. Too scary!

Been there, done that. Seems like every time my family heads down to Myrtle we end up having to abandon our aquatic fun due to cello music (Daaaa-dum....Daaaa-dum). Scary at first, but then you get that Al-RIGHT feel. "I escaped death!" you start shouting to people you don't know.

In related news, I'm home alone again...

Ah, I'm glad that I'm not the only one that swims in Evian. ;)

The few times I have been to the ocean I have only gotten in to where my knees are in the water. That shit scares the hell out of me! Glad you got out, or we might be reading: JozJozJoz Shark Barf
