sunny, sizzling hot, temps into the 90's
We're having a blast! Desperately, wonderfully, blissfully hot today. Burned the bottom of our feet walking on the sand. Not badly, of course...but we're aware of our soles now.
Before breakfast we dropped by our beach chairs, to drop off our books, only to discover - someone had taken our chairs! Now, back in Canada people get into fights over parking spots, cheating spouces, crack cocaine.
Here it's beach chairs.
The code - we learned early - is if a chair has a beach towel on it, it is taken. If it has a book, it is seriously taken probably by someone close by. Now one of the major advantages to having a butler - 'our butler' - is that they reserve a priome lounge chair on the beach early in the morning. Before we've stirred.
In a blink we have become the entitled. The priviledged. Yes - THOSE snots who reserve beach chairs at 7am and don't sit in them until 10:30.
We have become people we would hate under any other circumstances...except being them. You see - situational ethics.
But instead of being annoyed we...called our butler. We figured maybe our butler could fight their butler. but instead, the wonderful Sabie simply found us other chairs.
it's funny - and we really do laugh about it - but seriously, beach chair theft is a high crime here. Fortunately there are more than enough chairs to go around.
Had fun in the hot tub the other evening asking Michael how to spell scrotum. Wasn't sure I'd spelled it correctly in the last blog, since it isn't a word I often use. He paused then asked in a small, but stern, voice...'Now, why do you want to spell scrotum?'
"I used it in the blog.'
there was a longer pause.
I relented after an excrutiating moment when all sorts of possibilities whizzed through his mind - and explained it was a quote. He seemed relieved.
We are definitely having a great time...and doing what I promised myself to start doing...have more fun.
the wonderful Richard - King of all butlers - came by our room today to make sure everything was fine. He almost caught us taking an outdoor shower.
How do you spell...
Speak to you soon...we leave Monday...but lots of fun to have before then.
