I Haven’t Missed You One Bit, Big Yellow

He’s been in my closet for at least 8 months now.  Forgotten and not needed.  But it is pouring in San Pedro this morning, my ceiling is leaking pouring…time to get out the big, ugly, unbelievable thick, Gorton’s fisherman coat.  There is no looking good in this thing.  It always reminds me of the classic:  Yo mama so fat, when she wears a yellow raincoat, kids yell “Here comes the school bus!”.  (For more excellent “Yo mama jokes” scroll down to the end of this blog).  And if you wear one of these things, you’d better hope it’s not hot out.  It’s like walking around in an unbreathable wet suit…it will actually stick to you.

This big orange blob from the morning’s weather map makes me thing we are going to be seeing quite a bit more rain today.

Here’s the icky coat, his name is “Big Yellow”.   Probably my best $35bzd investment in Belize.  I bought him at Captain Sharks and I’ve actually been looking for matching shorts (I kid you not).  The puddles get so bad that you flick mud all over your pants.  So far I find that easy dry work out shorts are your best option.  And you need to carry a spare.

Luckily, EVERYONE else is wearing the same outfit so you don’t stand out.  The pants are a necessity is you are on a bike.

Just some random rain shots around Royal Palms.

A good day to make chicken soup, put on my Yankees gear (I’ll have to put on th A/C to wear the warm up jacket) and watch the game.

Dumb but still funny to me:

Yo mama so fat, when someone yells “KoolAid!”, she comes busting through the wall.
Yo mama so fat, she broke her leg and gravy poured out.
Yo mama so short, you can see her feet on her driver’s license.
Yo mama so dumb, she sits on the TV and watches the couch.

Ok, I’ll stop.

  • Feel free to use this tip that we used during Memphis in May last year. Board Shorts work much better than wearing the rain bottoms as you don’t sweat to death in the plastic coffin. One guy also bought a frog skin rain suit and cut the pants to make capri pants and he claimed it helped keeping your butt dry. Sure you look funny and lose fashion points but it beats wet underwear or sweating inside your suit during a rain storm. Yankees eh? boy you are going to have some heartache very soon.

    The board shorts or jogging shorts totally make the most sense…but getting splattered with cement mud ain’t good. My poor Yankees, I almost had a heart attack last night. We are still going to win.
