He was round. And white. And red eyed. And grey haired.
Got into the lane to the right of PP at the Hilltop Y. Glanced up at her to gauge the lane sharing potential. She, of course, hoped he’d opt for another lane.
He was a Snorkel Guy. (Need she say more?)
But wait. He was no ordinary Senior Snorkel Guy.
Cuz when the lane left of PP opened up and he dove in front of her and under the lane line, with a majestic spray of water honking out of his snorkel, she saw atop It….
A little American Flag waving in water logged glory!
What does it mean?
PP thinks it must be some sort of patriotic drowning ritual. He believes the flag is good for nothing except to wave atop his snorkel.
But yet, he didn't impress her as the disrespectful type. In fact, it seemed to be some sort symbol of Patriotic Honor. The American Flag will carry him through all obstacles: the Obnoxious Screaming Kids; the tidal wave making Butterfly Man; the Needy Floating Woman.
Yet isn’t the wetting of an American Flag sacrilegious or something?
What do you all think it means, oh wise Readers?
Please let PP know as soon as possible.
She's very worried that the American Flag is being used most inappropriately.
