I will tell you the tale of a man who is a legend, mainly in his own mind, but his growing popularity is that of an active volcano, we are all waiting for it to erupt. His claim to fame seems to come from lies and wise tales yet many have been there to either witness or be implicated in one of his acts. His mind wonders a bit and he doesn’t sit still much, or he sits still too much it’s kinda weird to explain. Either way this man has gone by many names, Stephen, Stephano, The Aquatic Giant, TAL, T, Frankie, SLAM, and the finally the Freak. He rarely matches his clothes which adds to the oddity of his character. He may be wearing a black fur with red shorts, or plaid pants with an off-color V-neck. It doesn’t make sense nor should it. He is more cartoon character than real human. Most stories start with, “hey remember that time he did this or did that”. You all laugh and the new guy says “No Fucking Way.” You chuckle, shake your head and walk away, he doesn’t know any better. Recently the Freak added small but new accolades to his growing resume of I can’t believe he is doing that tasks. He was in an independent short film, is a professional boxer (March 24th), had a beer named after his alter ego ” The Selfie King of Delaware”, and now has made it to competitive eater. The Freak will be participating in Wing Bowl on February 2nd.
Well it was a another great week and we had some good times. I don’t normally like to rush time but this week we leave for a two-week vaca to Dewey Beach. If you know me at all you know I love the beach. The biggest part of this week was that I had the fortune to take a three-day trip to Niantic, Connecticut this week also. This is a great little bay town with good food and great people.
The week moved slow in the beginning but has quickly picked up speed as we get closer to our family vacation in Dewey Beach, Delaware. If you have never been there it is one of the best social beach areas on the east coast. If you love the beach night life this is the place to go. There are multiple places to go to have a great time such as The Starboard, Bottle and Cork, Dewey Beer Co. , and the Light House just name a few. You will find me at almost every one of those over the next two weeks. Especially the Starboard on Sunday for Bloody Mary’s. You if happen to find us down there stop for a drink and a story.
My Three day trip to Niantic was awesome. There are a few establishments in both Niantic and New London that are fun and have good eats and drinks. I would start off by trying The Black Sheep Public House for a drink, a conversation, and some good eats. After you stop there head out and just enjoy walking around town and getting to know people. When we stopped in at the Black Shdep we got to talking to bartender and found out that she attended the University Delaware. I have partied in that town a million times. The planet is really small when you just stop and talk to people. While we are hanging out down in Dewey the wife and I get to plan our long weekend in Hollywood Florida in August. I can’t wait.
If you can find me stop and grab a selfie and tell us your story. We love meeting new people and having a good time.
Life is short stop worrying about tomorrow – Thee Time Traveler.
