Uncle Joey: February, 2019
вЂњFuck it, IвЂ™m going in,вЂќ we stated, dropping trou regarding the shore and splashing to the sea. OrionвЂ™s gear reflected from the small waves, in addition to water ended up being therefore clear we’re able to look at scalloped sand underneath our legs. The ocean had been bracing yet not freezing, additionally the moon had been almost complete.
Joseph and Micah looked over one another but scarcely hesitated to remove and follow me personally in, therefore the three of us вЂ” hairy Colorado sea bears вЂ” painfully pale and nude when you look at the moonlight, dove to the ocean, laughing and whooping and splashing around.
It absolutely was 1am, and Joseph had turned 40 simply an hour ago.
Their gf ended up being asleep right back within the airbnb, while the three of us had stopped to place our foot into the water after a sloshy boysвЂ™ night of carousing within the tiny Cuban coastline town of Varadero. None of us thought weвЂ™d be going for a swim.
But that is exactly what you will do as soon as the ocean is obvious, the evening is bright, youвЂ™re drunk on rum and smoky from cigars, also itвЂ™s your brotherвЂ™s big four-oh.
