May 30, 2006
The Thrasher calendar on my bedroom wall says it's not officially summer for another three weeks - but for me, summer arrives on Memorial Day weekend. That's when I can see the light at the end of that dark tunnel known as school - and that's also the date when the waterpark near my house opens.
I went to Waterworld on the weekend with my friend Matt and the place was screaming with good vibes - great weather, sweet slides and lots of cute girls in bikinis. We spent most of the day riding the tube slide and terrorizing younger kids by flipping them off their tubes. Unfortunately, the power-tripping lifeguard didn't appreciate how much fun we were having, so he banned us from the slide for the rest of the day. What a dolt - you give people a tiny bit of power and a megaphone and they think they should be president.
Anyway, our banishment from the slide didn't stop us from having fun. Instead, it gave us a chance to meet some girls, thanks to Matt. He's usually pretty good at talking to girls. He's kind of full of himself and he always makes up exaggerated stories about things he's never done before - but he does get results.
Matt introduced us to two girls, who were working at Waterworld's snackbar. (Matt says they were impressed by the fact that we'd been kicked us off the tube slide - made us look like "bad boys".) I'm not sure if they thought we we were bad boys or not but I think they liked us because they gave us free burgers and told us to come back next weekend. They said they'd be there and wouldn't be working! Nice weather, free food, cute girls - seems like my summer is off to a great start.
Where do you think the best place to meet cute girls or cute boys is in the summer? The pool? The park? The mall? .
