Shark Attack

You might have read about the shark attack that occurred a week or so ago on Cape Cod. Ballston Beach in Truro to be exact. Last attack in these parts was in 1936. It reminded me of the first time I ever saw the movie Jaws.
Remember the very first time you saw it? I was a wee one and was terrified. It took weeks before I felt comfortable swimming in the pool, let alone the ocean. Well, the recent attack prompted a screening of the movie at home last night. Released in 1975, I am impressed with how well it holds up after all this time. That is great story telling.

So the next time I jump in from the boat in my wetsuit, I'm gonna be thinking how much I look like a seal. Shark bait. That should keep me warm in these chilly waters.
