rain and sun
i take the basket with yesterdays grounds still in it and reach out to shake
it into the sea off the dock.
apparently the basket has been waiting for this for a long time.
it sees it's chance and makes a mad leap into the crashing surf.
forgetting it's made of plastic, it tries to dive down and out of my sight.
i chuckle to myself and go get a kayak paddle.
after ten minutes of cursing and trying to ignore the growing howls of laughter
from the ever increasing crowd of divers gathered at the shop i manage to flip
the damn thing back on the dock.
(who knew that a plastic basket could be so agile!?)
still having my wits about me i knew that i should probably
rinse the salt water off the basket before i made the coffee.
i go around to the back of the shop.
i see a pvc pipe.
i see a handle.
i turn the handle.
i have an epiphany.
i'm standing in an outdoor shower.
it's a good thing i got in to the dive shop ahead of the rain.
todays breakfast: salty coffee and oreos.
