Take a good, hard look at this picture, because there are two things in it that will likely never be seen again
by human eyes.
some good friends from church. We enjoyed a cookout, played in the pool (with a view of the bay), and ripped it up on our friends' jet-skis. It was the first time I had every been on a jet-ski, and I'm already hungering for more.
After I took a highly enjoyable, but tightly controlled ride, Jessie and his buddy Rob decided to take the jet-skis out and allow them to realize their full potential. Now, Rob is one who is very experienced at jet-ski tomfoolery, so at some point he spun his ride around at high speed in close proximity to Jessie's ride, so as to drench him with salt water, and awaken in him an intense desire for revenge. Unfortunately, Jessie is not one who is very experienced at jet-ski tomfoolery. Consequently, when he went in for the kill, he hit Rob's wake and was thrown off his ride through the air (in slow-motion, I am told) and backwards through the water for about ten yards. When he surfaced Rob immediately observed that Jessie's glasses were missing, but it wasn't until they were back on land that Jessie realized his wedding band was also AWOL.
As you can see, while Jessie was off disencumbering himself of several hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise, I was partaking in tamer pursuits, all the while remaining in possession of both my glasses, and my wedding band.
At least we have the assurance from Rob, that Jessie did indeed get him soaking wet with the fateful maneuver, so we can take comfort in the fact that his valuables were lost in a worthy endeavor. And, perhaps somewhere in the bay of Tampa there is a dolphin now sporting a very sharp pair of spectacles, and a size 11 white gold men's wedding ring.
discovered that the frames Jessie lost
(which we both really liked, and he had
owned for less than a year) are no longer
available. And you can be sure that,
when given an opportunity do purchase
a new ring, Jessie will not go for the
same old style he's been sporting for
almost four years.
