I went for a surf in Pacific Beach a couple weeks ago, a spot I used to surf frequently because I lived close-by, and I was a bit shocked at how few people were there. It was a fluke 89 degree day in April, where was everyone?! Oh yes, how could I forget that there was a booze ban imposed last year? Like most people, there are parts of the booze ban that I like (e.g. no more drunk idiots wondering in front of my house or leaving beer cans in my front yard), and parts that I hate and that make me sad (can’t a man just enjoy a cold beer and a sunset? What kind of free country is this???). But trying to make a compromise seemed too difficult a task for the proposition authors, and our only options were to vote either Yes or No on a ban.
So I found it amusing that there was a piece today in the Union Tribune, written by Michael Stetz who admits that, though he voted against the ban, the San Diego beaches are now extremely boring. “With the booze ban at San Diego beaches now firmly in place, our beaches have become a real snooze scene. When I go there, I see a lot of families. And families are boring. I know. I have a family”, Stetz writes. I concur. What a bore. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it thrice: I’m tired of a few bad apples ruining it (whatever “it” tends to be) for the rest of us. And that, ladies and gentlemen is all I have to say about that.
In other news, stay tuned to the Team Aguilar Blog in coming weeks as I bring you a close and personal look into the life and times of REO Field Agent and close friend, Cory McGilvery. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll thank your lucky stars that you’re still living in your home.
