Beaches and Knees

So much for a relaxing break. I haven’t had a nice day for the past one-and-a-half weeks since Will and I went to the beach (pics after the jump). Since then I’ve been working on keeping my wallet nourished and happy.

Oddly enough, Will managed to tear a muscle in his knee the other day while getting dressed. I don’t know how he does it! At first he went to a Chinese healer since he feared hospitals. He must’ve really been in pain though as today he overcame that fear and called me to meet him at a medical centre. Now he knows they’re not that scary, just incredibly boring (”expected waiting time: 2 hours”).

Poor guy has the worst luck. He’s the kind of guy who will always drop the last chocolate or trip on the last step. I’ve seen him peel a banana and half of it just dropped off and went splat.

The beach was good, prior to last week I hadn’t been to one for about six years. We played some frisbee, Will went wakeboarding, and I got to spend a couple of hours reading a book and rolling around in the sand. Now I shall spend the next six years trying to get of all the sand in our bags and shoes.

In the evening a storm came rolling in, complete with fork lightning and booming thunder. As a kid living by the coast and I loved watching the solid grey walls of rain come in (from a safe location of course). Unfortunately a lot of teens at the beach didn’t seem to know the ’safe location’ rule and either went running to play in the choppy water or cowered under trees. Aiya!

In case you’re wondering, in his left hand he’s holding his wallet.

    Ai, silly hospitals. I think the worst I had was a 3 1/2 hour waiting time. The other option is private medical centres but they’re just overpriced, especially when all they diagnose you with is a cold!

    Silly me. I thought I’ve already updated my profile on your wordpress blog, but it turns out I never did. heehee. You’ll be seeing more of me here. I love bloghopping! Anyway, sounds like a fun trip! I would prefer reading a book too when I’m at the beach. haha. I hope he recovers fast.

    Ahh, I love the beach. Living here in NJ in the USA is great. I’m an hour away from the jersey shore, and then an hour away from New York City. However, the worst part about the beach though is always the sand. At the jersey beaches, they usuall have these communal type shower things (that freak me out) where you can wash all the sand off…. but it’s nearly impossible.Looks like you had fun, and I hope your beau is feeling well soon. I have a terrible fear of hospitals and doctors too.

    Beaches are always fun. It’s been years since I went to one though, Malaysian beaches are dirty anyway.By the way you look a bit like Lucy Liu And your WP themes rock.

    Ah, I miss the beach! I miss sandcastles and burying someone in sand! And reading a book while on the beach is perfectly normal thing! Well, at least I think so. ^^

    LOL! I don’t think I’m willing to spend the next 6 years trying to get sand into my bag Blame it on my skin as I always get sunburnt. Your skin shade colour is lovely though! I shall continue to try till I reach that shade

    shucks. how flattering. Somethink tells me Will’s best medicine is you! despite the knee pain the guy preferred seeing you over a doc. I’m sure the pain’ll be gone tomorrow

    Remind me never to let Will around my chocolate stash! The pics of you two look fantastic – and you look more relaxed than I feel, and that just makes me jealous of your beach time. But – I’m glad you had fun. Super glad that you relaxed and thrilled to hear that you’re not spending ALL your time staring at a computer monitor. heh!And the whole Star Treck thing… I just have this to say: You Geek!
