knife fights, chihuahuas, and sharks.
For the last four days in Dominican Republic (Saturday – Tuesday), there was no wind. When one goes to a country specifically to engage in a sport that requires wind, and the wind ceases, one tends to find other ways to entertain oneself.
Tanicus and I managed to find some other stuff to do.
1. We simulated a knife fight in the kitchen of our beach house.
Tanicus is very specific about knives. Therefore, he brings his own knives every time he travels, which is why we get along so well. This is an endearing quality that every man should aspire to mimic. Women should copy it also.
One benefit to having your knives with you is that when the weather is not conducive to kiteboarding, you can simulate knife fights, which is what Tanicus and I did on Monday, for no good reason. This kept us occupied for roughly one hour.
2. We went to the beach and drank liquor out of coconuts.
When choosing where to live or play, “ease of access to liquored coconuts” should be pretty high on your priority checklist. I’m somewhat horrified that there is not one single entrepreneur on Montrose Beach in Chicago taking advantage of this money-making opportunity during the summer months. Obtaining a reliable source of liquored coconuts is the most important measure of one’s success in life.
3. We borrowed a Chihuahua named Spike Lee and fed him human food.
Let it be known that I do not normally like Chihuahuas or Spike Lee. However, somehow when combined they made the perfect creature.
