PADDLE WHAT?!? ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!



I've really got to hand it to Neighbor Malissa. She found just the right way to make me feel like even more of an Inactive Slug than I already am. "I have an idea," she said this morning, "Let's go Paddle Surfing this weekend!" I wasn't quite sure how to respond. "Paddle surfing?," I said, "That sounds serious." "Oh it's great," she said, "You stand on a surboard and use a paddle like an oar." "Hmmm," I replied, "I think it would be an -- aaahm -- cold day in Hell before I tried something like that!" Visions of me scraping the ocean floor swam through my head, but I tried to keep my feelings to myself. "You know, I think I have an idea that just might make Paddle Surfing even more fun," I said, "How about if we add large walls, a mast and an outboard motor to the surfboard and call it a boat?" Do that -- and hire a captain -- and you can count me in ...!

Maybe she should ask Arnold, if he is up for some Paddle surfing.

Sounds like you have the old beanie working today. Did she get any takers?

Yeah, one stroke and I'd be off the board and in the drink!
