Nords, do you go surfing with younger guys? Do you ever feel like that Steve Martin character in the SNL skit? "Totally tubular!"
Well, around here a "heated pool" is in the low 80s. Anything under 75 is a harsh contrast and some of those older aquarobics customers might complain to the management.
Where do you think Steve got the idea for the skit?!? School's out now, so most of the surfers are teens or parents teaching younger kids. We older guys are still out there enjoying the incredible bikini-clad high-school hardbodies perfecting our laid-back style among the rippers & shredders, but we're in the definite minority. Things will improve in September. Tuesday mornings will be back to the shiftworkers, part-timers, ERs, & unemployed, and the median age will return to the 40s.
Yeah, we have a couple regulars in their 60s and one who's at least in his 70s. It's hard to tell with some of the ol' stoners veteran longboarders.
