I don't remember learning to boogie board but I can sure enjoy it.

Yes i very much do. First attempts were on those god awful polystyrene boards that gave you the stomach rash from hell! What i dont or cant associate with is the fear like when starting a new extreme sport if when older because i was brought up in and around water i never developed that fear as many would if they were attempting to surf for the first time in larger surf... I even remember at two years old jumping in the deep end of the pool, sinking, holding my breath and waiting for someone to notice me and pick me up off the bottom... There were a number of times i apparently almost drowned. Parents in the finally gave in a bought a body harness with reigns :) If there was water i would bee line straight for it will parents in pursuit fully clothed :)

My first surfing attempts were when I was staying at my aunt's beach shack at a beach not far away from where I live now.
I found an old surfboard under the house and carried it (quite a distance) down to the beach.
I think I was around twelve or thirteen.
Anyway, I basically taught myself.
Only the board was damaged and started taking on water.
Have no idea what it was made of.
It was sinking lower and lower under the surface, and by the end it was about a foot under.
Had to drag the blasted thing all the way back to my aunt's because I couldn't lift it.

Agreed. I even brewed my own pot of peach oolong on someone else's request so that's been helping.

Today was a straight up loose leaf day though. :heart: :lol:

And EVERYONE finds that ACCEPTABLE!

BUT... Don't wash your hands before eating OR putting your (useless) hand up in-front of your stupid face when you sneeze! (a lot that's going to stop!)

It's not useful s**t! It just comes down to etiquette!

Which is useless s**t!

It's akin to small talk!
