The Humor Under The Water
by Gordon Kirkland
(Bristish Columbia, Canada)
Over the last several years, my wife and I have been somewhat addicted to underwater photography. We've been to Grand Cayman, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, Belize and the BVI. In a few weeks we are heading to Barbados.
It's a great way for us to unwind from our daily lives. Diane is a financial adviser and a partner in a large firm. I am a best-selling humor writer.
My new book came out last week. It's called My Slice Of Life Is Full Of Gristle. It's a collection of over 40 humorous essays, two of which involve snorkeling. In one I talk about being forced (OK, double-dog dared) into kissing a very large southern stingray that had swum into my arms in Grand Cayman. In the other I talk about the experience of swimming alongside a 9-foot shark in Belize and having a small horse-eye jack bite my hand and draw blood... bleeding... in the water... with a 9-foot shark three feet to my right.
If you're interested, My Slice Of Life Is Full Of Gristle is available in paperback and for the Kindle.
