jellyfishing! jellyfishing!somewhere ouside of charleston south carolina...
let me set the scene. me and my buddy andy (who lives in asheville nc) have been on the road for three and a half hours in the hottest most humid weather imaginable. 95+ and 95% humidity. good shit huh? we pull up to a random inlet at folley beach and walk out tward the ocean.
'i cannot believe we are here.'
'the mutha-fuckin atlantic. oh yeah!' we both laugh.
'hey man you ever been here before?'
'nah, i've been to charleston before but not here.'
'sweet, well you know i have'nt. let's go check out the water.'
we stumble down the chunky dark brown wooden steps and onto the sand. its different than the course grainy sand that i am used to.
'feel that sand?'
'yeah, that is some nice sand.'
since i had never been to this coast before i decided to go in first. i popped my shoes off and tossed my shirt on the small wooden breakwall that laid on the shore. i ran out a bit and dove in. it was warm and salty. the waves were 2-3 foot high and consistant. the soft bottom and slow descent made for a fun beach break on a mellow sand bar.
'wow man, the atlantic.'
'its really warm.'
'just kidding, but on the real, there are some nice lil waves here. i could really see having some fun when they actually come up.'
'it looks like it huh?'
'man this is nice.'
we went on for a few more minutes body surfing and jokin around. just glad to be out of the car.
'hey man dont forget the stingray shuffle to avoid getting stung.'
'oh yeah i remember that. also dont forget to do the jellyfish avoidance dance.' we both laughed and swam on. not a minute later....
AAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! i'm hit!!!
'are you kidding?'
'no! this shit hurts.' i am now running to the shore in agony. it hurts like nothing i have ever felt.
'are you ok?'
'does it look like i'm ok?'
'sorry man, how does it feel?'
'fuckin horrible. oh my god. i gotta walk this off.'
'do you want me to pee on it?'
'are you kidding?'
'hey man, i'm just trying to be a friend.'
'i think you just want to pee on me. DAMN this hurts!'
'it would be funny and i hear it makes it hurt less.'
'now i'm convinced, you just want to pee on me.'
'are you sure?'
'you're sick dude.'
