share-bare's ranDUMB Moment #7

After the whole moving and unpacking bull crap I had finally completed, I decided to look through some shoe boxes full of photos. I came across some pictures from 2003, I believe. It was our first girlfriend vacation. Destination - Oahu, Hawaii! Oh the memories... [Flashback starting...NOW] In preparation for our very first girls vacation, I looked up to Danny Tanner and initiated Share's own 'Clipboard of Fun'. Before we left for our trip, I kindly emailed them to the girls of the exact time and schedules for our activities during our stay in Hawaii. I'm not sure if people liked the idea. It didn't really matter to me. All that mattered was that I was in total control freak mode and I loved it! Anyway, one of our activities was to go snorkeling in the ocean. Nice, right? Yup. It was beautiful. We woke up early one morning and drove to the dock where are little yacht was at. We checked in and boarded this boat. All Aboard! Everyone was excited except for Rho and Irene. They both decided to stick this one out and just chill on the boat deck. I guess they were not so into the entire swimming with fish idea. They were good sports though and came along for the ride. We had a breakfast brunch with fruits and pastries. Afterward it was time to put on our gear and snorkel away. We were all hoping we'd be able to spot a sea turtle. Definite goal for that early afternoon. I put my goggles and flippers along with this wrap around waist thing. It must have been some type of flotation device. We all jumped into the ocean. OMG! OMFG! I started to get into a panic attack. ""I can't swim!! Joyce help me!" She couldn't hear me at first but noticed I was being dipped in and out of the water. The ocean tripped me out. Its was weird how the water moved me back and forth. I tried to tread but I just couldn't! She was like hang on! So she finally got to me and tried to calm me down. She was like why the hell are you in the water? I forgot! I forgot that I can't swim. I was hoping that those yellow waist wrap around thingees would keep my head above water. I mean wasn't that the whole point of it?! Anyway, she was nice enough to hold and guide me to the ladder. All the girls were like laughing. I was a fool. Anyway, Joyce was kind enough to get me a noodle to keep me afloat. I took it from her and then went on my merrily way. Around my wrist I had a disposable waterproof camera. I had it in case, I sighted a sea turtle. I then screamed out, "I think I found one!" I started dipping my head under water for seconds at a time to capture a photo of a sea turtle. My day was a huge success! After wannabe-swimming in the ocean, I wanted to go jumping on the trampoline. We all swam towards it which was held by a rope from the boat. We all had a blast! I'm glad I can say that I went snorkeling and also had a near drowning experience. Thanks Joyce for saving my life! p.s. Remember the picture of the sea turtle i took with my waterproof disposable camera? Once I got our pictures developed in the Mainland, I looked and discovered that yeah - it was not a sea turtle sighting. It was more like a black buoy keeping our boat in place during our snorkeling session. Can I say moded?! LMAO. I think I threw it away out of embarrassment. Sorry, I really would've shared it with you. LOL!

That's me attempting to wave . . . LOL!
