Beach Day [flash 158]

The girls arranged their towels in the perfect spot to people-watch and soak up rays. “Mmm,” Ashley said. “What a great beach day!”

Janelle slathered a copious amount of sunblock on her pale skin. “Totally. Does that guy look familiar?”

They stared at a man near the lifeguard tower who appeared immersed in a book. He was middle-aged, fit, and handsome, and munching on pickles out of a jar.

“I think it’s Brock MacDonald, the rock star!” Ashley said. “He’s notorious for demanding pickles in his dressing room.”

“Should we instigate a conversation and ask for his autograph?” Janelle asked. “Otherwise no one will believe we saw him here.”

“Okay!” Ashley giggled. “But let’s be cool and not do anything extreme.”

The girls sauntered across the sand toward the lifeguard tower, but when they got closer they saw the title of the man’s book was Cannibalism for Dummies and decided to go for a swim instead.
