So here's how the story goes...
My Dad and my Sister C were discussing the high tides/low tides. Sister C so smartly informed my Dad that the moon had more to do with the Tide changes than the sun. My Dad disagreed and said it was the sun that played the bigger part in creating the tides. So they made a bet...
If my dad was right it was a $5 loss. If Sister C was right...Here it comes... He had to walk to the Pier and Back in a Speedo!!! Hee hee hee... guess what?? It's the Moon!! Gotta love internet, we were able to snatch some wireless from a nearby hotel and look it up...AND prove him wrong.
My other Sister K and her Hubby Drill Sergeant went out shopping the next morning and actually found Speedos in the store...Why? Seriously why would a hip downtown store be carrying these in stock is beyond me, getting past that idea, they bought it...in bright RED! They also bought MATCHING yellow Corona suits for ALL the guys. That's a whole nother story though.
My Dad has a great sense of humor, but he is never wrong. So the whole family was after him about this one. Needless to say his sense of adventure, sense of humor and maybe lack of self pride won over and he put it on. Now I must warn you...he tans very fast...he's been wearing his long bathing suit all week... there are areas that are NOT tan...that's what made the whole thing so funny!! He put it on and he went walking...with all of us following, laughing and of course video taping!! He got quite a response because it was a weekend and a crowded beach... BUT he did it and he stood proud with a smile ALL THE WAY TO THE PIER...DOWN THE PIER...AND BACK! Picture it...Papa walking the beach with his children in tow...laughing... I mean supporting him and laughing...5 guys walking behind him in matching YELLOW Corona bathing suits... My Mom about to fall over in embarrassment, yet still video taping and explaining to the crowds that he lost a bet to his daughter, the crowds finding this very amusing and spreading the word...it was a great moment in time!
CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
DAD~ ALTHOUGH I HAVE SEEN WAY MORE OF YOU THAN I EVER WANTED TO...I ALSO SAW ANOTHER SIDE OF YOU THAT I ADMIRE AS WELL...YOU HAVE AN AMAZING SENSE OF HUMOR...A BET IS A BET AND YOU DID IT, YOU ACTUALLY DID IT...I GIVE YOU SO MUCH CREDIT AND ADMIRATION...HOLY COW...YOU ACTUALLY DID IT!
Thanks for the memories...I think!
My disclaimer...no offense to anyone who likes, admires, or wears speedos.
To each their own~ whatever ya wanna wear...just don't sit by me.
