Rowdy’s Dream Blog #211: My friend has been diving in the pool which contains a huge vicious shark.
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Sat Jul 30 2011 6:04 AM ]
I have been sent to attend a conference. Instead of going to the meetings, I've been hanging out with all the misfits by the pool. My boss shows up and finds me there, to my embarrassment. My friend has been diving in the pool which contains a huge vicious shark. It leaps high out of the water and takes big bites out of the cement edge. My friend emerges from underwater and climbs out. He staggers a little, falls headlong on the deck and throws up some blood. "He bit me on my damn hand and towel!" he exclaims bitterly.

Even though the shark is dead, the photo of the little girl next to it still freaks me out. R.I.P., sharky.
