New Beach Toy

We spotted a great two-person beach toy in a shop window down the street. It looked like fun until San Geraldo got an image in his mind of the two of us attempting to use it. To work well, the weight would need to be fairly balanced. We decided against it when San Geraldo described me being catapulted skyward.

WHAT WE SAW.
WHAT SAN GERALDO IMAGINED.

  1. Looks like some sort of "inflatable beach haemorrhoid ring seat for lovers" - like one of those back to fronty seats they used to have in t'olden days.

    Splendid.

      It's amazing how many people have said that (including San Geraldo). I've never had the "pleasure."

  2. Hahahaha! I think you should get one, and have a friend video the results! It will be at least as amusing as this photo!

      There are so many things San Geraldo and I need to try now. Such great video opporunities.

  3. Funny! Wonder how far you'd fly before hitting the water (or worse... the beach)?

  4. I don't know ... being catapulted might have been fun.

  6. Great pity you didn't 'take the plunge'. The picture of you being launched would have been priceless. I wonder if these things puncture easily - say, just as an example, by claws (you knew that reference would be sneaked in somewhere, didn't you?). You'd have to keep it in the middle of 'your' swimming pool!

      Oh, I'm sure the boys would have a ball... once they got over their initial fear. But it would a brief "ball" before it was punctured.

      Thanks. I really wanted to start over but decided there was no need to obsess.

  8. Ha ha! Maybe you guys have invented a new sport. You could measure how high someone is catapulted into the air.

      I think they've already perfected it at Cirque du Soleil.

      Oh, yeah, San Geraldo really isn't much of a saint.

  10. we saw one the other day at a pool party - I was fascinated it was almost literally covered with warning labels of how not to use it on land, not a life presever, etc. For a fun thing all this dire consternation took all the fun out of it !

      All those inflatable toys are covered with those warning labels. Seems absurd to me. We bought an inflatable giraffe in the late '80s. Couldn't see the giraffe pattern for all the warnings. Yes, we bought an inflatable giraffe as a life preserver for our yacht.
