Things I Learned on July 19th, 2009

  • 7 am is a good time to travel from Baltimore to Ocean City on Sundays
  • Drinking a large coffee before a road trip will lead to many pit-stops
  • It is important to bring gas money- lots of gas money
  • A good music playlist is essential in order to have a good road trip
  • A driver is lucky to get a parking spot on the Oceanside of Costal Highway, very lucky
  • One should bring an ipod, a book or a friend to occupy their time spent out of the water
  • Don’t forget to apply, re-apply and re-re-apply sunscreen
  • Places like the backs of hands, tops of feet, lips and ears are often forgotten when applying sunscreen
  • If you have gauges, you will most likely loose one, if not both while body-surfing, but things like pen caps can make appropriate substitute gauges
  • It is smart to bring an extra set of clothes when going to the beach. You never know when you’ll have to change
  • Always check for things like vomit before swimming in a pool
  • It is never good to accidentally bump into a car, especially when the owner of said car is a bitchy old pro golf employee. She will call the cops
  • The police in Ocean City have better things to do than waste their time on accident reports
  • 6:30 pm is not a good time to travel from Ocean City to Baltimore on Sundays
  • Avoid listening to calming music while driving home exhausted, this will only make you want to sleep
  • Don’t listen to the navigational device "TomTom" when trying to find the fastest route home. The monotonous machine will take you on six different highways and through the city, ultimately taking you on the most sketchy and longest route possible
  • Bad things happen in three's
  • Driving home at ten o’clock when you haven’t slept in 34 hours is not good. Your vision will start to fail and you won’t be able to keep your head straight


  1. Amen to that brother.

    although, i did tell you to sleep when we were stuck in traffic on the bridge, hon.
