since my 40s ive been traumatized by the date friday the 13th...
and so now i wonder stupidly about 2013...
especially when on the first day, I take the rip out past the large waves and surf in
only to be lectured by the captain of the patrol
about warning the patrol before I swim...
i wanted to tell him that they are at least 400 meters to walk to
and the rip looked so blue and inviting, that my old legs didnt want to walk that distance just to tell them..
he asked if had life insurance...
i laughed and then he presumed...
"You dont!"
so i didnt feel like discussing this , and  i just continued to workout
and then came home to the power being turned off again in our humble old beach abode, because of a blown fuse (very outdated electricicity) ...
i wondered if this would be the start of a normal day in 2013!

i wrote this kinda prophetic piece and then for the third time im working out with my mentor lifeguard friend , stu..
so i first get stung by the long stringy tentacle of the blue bottle for the 3rd time in a row working out with stu confirming the unluck of the year 2013(??)
ill do another sprint out to the buoy held by a heavy brick that we dragged out more than 50 meters
passed the last ominous intimidating break...
i had an awful premonition of being smacked on my head
of course it happens...
and i think
at least im still alive and not paralyzed but my thoughts are that now its a lot more difficult to move my head in either direction while i write this piece wondering if i should share it with the Mermaid facebook??
i wonder what happened when my skull banged so hard against the sand...
the wave picked me up and flung me hard against the unforgiving sand...
and thinking how ironic that the surf captain asked what would happend if something happened to me
without letting them know i was in this sometimes unforgiving surf
cept this time there were two professionals right there with me
when i was first slammed very hard on my feet
and then the next wave body slammed me on my  skull
and wondered what happened to andy kaufman(the professional very bizarre comedian) when he decided to wrestle against a professional wrestler 3 times his size
and then he had to wear a halo around his broken(?) neck...
