My co-editor and partner-in-everything, Pam, is so creative. Just check out what she whipped together using one of those make-your-own-magazine-cover apps. Full disclosure: Posing with a surfboard is about as close to actually riding one as it gets for me.
It's not the first time I had my picture made with a surfboard. During high school, me and a buddy took a summer trip down to the Texas coast, where we rented a pair of surfboards. I gave it my best shot, but it just wasn't my thing.
But not wanting to return to school a laughingstock, we devised a plan: Place the surfboard on the beach, stand on it and strike a "Moondoggie" pose, wait until the waves covered it up -- then take a photo.
Come on -- you have to give us some credit: PhotoShop was years away.
Yes, I know it's spelled like "Jerry." No, I don't know why it's pronounced "Gary."
