What a beautifully written post. And as for the pizza - I want a slice! You were so descriptive my mouth actually began watering!

Keep it up :)

"The truth is I couldn’t surf to save my life. The surfboard is merely a prop to make me appear more striking when I emerge from the pounding waves."

Hahahahaha! Surfer Girl - sang along with that.

Enjoyed it.

"She is stunning in her bright orange French cut bikini and her banana yellow ski glasses. Her soft golden brown skin is coated with moist coconut suntan lotion" Those warm colors Man! You took me to your teen summer for a couple of minutes :)
Hey! Hey! Ladies! Left me some of that pizza!

quillfeather,
Thank you. If you're ever in Manhattan Beach or Redondo Beach, you have to try Zeppy's Pizza.
JW,
Great to hear from you! Hope college life is treating you well. You'll have that siged copy next year.
Midlife Jobhunter,
Thanks for reading, laughing and singing along. It's much appreciated on this end...

Lazy Writer,
Thank you for the kind words. Next time your in LA, head over to Manhattan or Redondo for a slice of that Zeppy's pizza.
Kavita,
Thank you. I'm glad I could provide a little entertainment to a true adventurer like you.

italgalmm,
Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I was one of the true kings of teenage awkwardness.

G-Man,
I can feel you feeling my pain...

Guely of Sweden said...

Oranges and bananas and coconuts! Oh, my!
Haven't noticed the many fruits before. Well as Freud said when he was in the beach: Sometimes a coconut is just a coconut!

G-Man,
Aha, you're on track to the realization that this simple story of teenaged dorkiness is actually a complicated conceit about the recent implosion of the American real estate market.

Awww poor you!!
Am I glad that I never fancied any of the teenaged boys at my school at the glorious age of Seventeen...
Though... I bet that kind of stuff makes for a good laugh now-a-days... I guess I'll never know...
Who's glad now?? *scratches head confusedly*
^^
