Weirdest moment. I am sitting on my little beach chair, and a young handsome man, kind of a young Desi Arnez, struts out of the surf carrying a very small baby - maybe a couple months old. I think, Oh, a dad. Sweet.
So as he walks right past me, close enough that the baby is dripping on me, I smile my grandmotherly smile and say, "Does she like the water?"
I think he misheard me.
His face lights up. In slightly broken English he rapsodizes, "Oh eet was so wonderful! I tuk my bathing suit off and swim without anything between me and zee water - eet was the first time I've done that and Oh! was SO wonderful! The water was feeling so good!"
Meanwhile the baby is hanging over his arm like a sack of wet towels.
"Oh yes! Being in zee water without anything was so egg-citing! Have you tried it yes?"
And he smiles the biggest possible smile.
And I smile a stupid kind of smile and say, "Oh good!" And "Ah, good!" And "Sure!"
So that was it. The weirdest part of my day.
