While anytime is a good time to enjoy Rocky Point, we are now entering my favorite time of year. Passing the days in shorts and tees and changing to warmer attire at sundown simply can’t be beat. However, I discovered that Rebecca Sondheim of Tucson is a bit … uh … different … when the scorch of summer is replaced by the coolness of early fall and winter.
REBECCA: What’s the hap, Cap?
CAP’N GREG: Enjoying the best sunset on the planet.
REBECCA: True, that.
CAP’N GREG: Didn’t I see you wearing jeans and a hoodie at lunch?
REBECCA: Yup, that was me.
CAP’N GREG: But now that the sun has gone down, you are wearing shorts and a halter top.
REBECCA: You got a problem with that?
CAP’N GREG: Dear lady, any man who would have a problem with the way you look right now should give up his worldly ways and join a monastery.
REBECCA: Thanks. I guess.
CAP’N GREG: But why…
REBECCA: I don’t want my skin to have the texture of a ripe avocado when I’m 40, so I stay out of the sun as much as possible.
CAP’N GREG: Whatever you’re doing, it’s working very well.
REBECCA: Don’t get me wrong. I like to strip down and splash in the ocean or pool during the spring and summer, but we fair-skinned people have to be extra careful.
CAP’N GREG: I use SPF 2000 when I go out fishing and I still get burned to a cinder.
REBECCA: A lot of that burn might be from the wind. I hear you like to drive fast.
CAP’N GREG: Life is short, Rebecca. Gotta hurry to the better times.
REBECCA: Gives me goosebumps to think of getting older.
CAP’N GREG: I noticed the goosebumps. But maybe some of that is temperature related.
REBECCA: You’re a wise man for an old geezer, Cap’n Greg.
CAP’N GREG: Thanks. I guess.
