Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Julie's story reminds me of the old episodes of "Rescue, 911" that William Shatner used to host. EVERY... and I mean EVERY story started out the same way. "It was a beautiful day, the family was hanging out.... life was good... everything was perfect..." and then Shatner's tone would immediately change and he'd say, "AND THEN SUDDENLY... TRAGICALLY..." and would continue on as the exciting story unfolded.

It also reminds me of the episode of Seinfeld where George pretended to be a Marine Biologist and at the episode's end recounts his story about the beached whale. He starts by saying, "The sea was angry that day my friends!..."

That's white-knuckle stuff!
