A positive spin


A reader pointed out that I've been whining a lot so today I'm going to blog about positives.

Did you know that I'm a good surfer?  Well I am.  I have excellent balance for such an imbalanced girl, someone once pointed out.

My Mom use to say I loved the water so much I was probably half fish.

I don't go in the water much anymore.  That's probably because my girlfriend got eaten by a shark. Well, not eaten. "Bit" is probably more accurate, but it just doesn't sound as dramatic.

We were out beyond the breakers. I never even saw the shark. Suddenly there was my best friend, sticking her bisected hand in my face, screaming for her life.

I remember praying to Jesus to please let us make it back to shore alive.

My friend lost a few fingers but she's fine. I call it her "Creepy hand," she calls it her "Lucky hand."

Hmmm... I think I just learned a lesson from my own blog!

PS: I wrote a comic about this incident a few years ago.  Here it is:

  1. You haven't been whiny at all, Tera. I think it's nice that you are so open about your trials and tribulations (sp?)

  3. My husband and I spent time in Hagåtña and we went a lot of time at the beach.The lifeguard told us sharks don't bother swimmers in Guam because of the reef that surrouns the island, but one day while snorkling ilooked down in the water through my mask and saw a very big shark. I've never been so scared in my whole life.
