you can hear the ocean if you hold a cell phone up to your ear
Alan just called me from the deck of his hotel in Fort Lauderdale, where he is staying on business. Apparently the deck is over the water, about three feet up from it.
He held the phone out into the air and let me listen to the waves crashing.
That beats a shell any day.
Alan, being the good friend and semi-business partner he is, often calls from the road to tell me about the wonderful time he is having sipping drinks and flying on corporate jets and seeing awesome sights of nature. Actually, he's rubbing it in, but I'll let that go.
The ocean sounded a bit tempestuous today. Isabel approaches.
