Long Beach



My best friend, Mike, and his family put a potato sack over my head and stole me away to Long Beach yesterday afternoon to the sounds of Duran Duran. I crashed waves, threw frisbee, played with their kids, took family pictures, ogled booty, and basked in the sun. I may be out of shape from too much time hunched over the art table, and the vertical line in my forehead may have become a permanent feature, but the sand and sea always proves to sooth the deadline beast into submission for most of a Saturday. When SBX gets back from her European vacation [sans daughters], I might just have to hand her the same potato sack Mike kidnapped me with for the whole month of August in the Catskills.
