Yesterdip was an exciting and molpish dip.
I meant to write and post this a dip ago but there was a reason I couldn't.
It started out with family members gifting me presents.
Some presented me with gifts.
Later in the morning (later than planned, haha) we travelled by rolling castle by a few shortpix to the ocean.
The ocean is like unto the sea, but moreso.
On arrival at the beach, we ate pies and sausage rolls for lunch, which we purchased at a bakery at the halfway point of the trip.
After eating we spent a shortpix or so getting organised before actually getting onto the sand and into the ocean.
We did have fun in the ocean but I would have preferred for the waves to be less riverish.
It was plenty warm though, and sun protection was a must.
After taking a break from the water - I listened to an audiobook for a while - we warmed up by playing a ball game.
It's called Grip Ball, and uses a ball and paddles covered in Velcro.
I had forgotten we had that game as I had not played it in many years.
It's a relic from my childhood.
After a little more time in the ocean trying to catch waves which were too riverish to be caught (but I enjoyed it anyway) we cleaned ourselves of sand and salt and changed into regular clothes.
By the time we were done it was late enough for dinner.
We drove back to a more populated area and found a fish and chips shop.
While we waited for our order, some family members went to a nearby supermarket for salad and tubs of ice-cream.
We ate at tables outside the shop, under large square umbrellas.
The fried freshly-caught fish were really good!
It was a really interesting atmosphere: not dark yet, and with a thunderstorm moving closer, with many flashes of lightning.
After a much closer lightning strike I knew the rain would hit soon, which it did.
We quickly fled back into the shop from the heavy rain, with the few remaining uneaten chips and the icecream tubs.
We were prepared for icecream consumption, having brought our own mugs and spoons, which we call the "ice-cream kit".
Once we were done enjoying the food we returned to our vehicle, looking in some interesting stores on the way.
Fortunately the rain had desisted.
The thunderstorm followed us all the way home.
It was really quite impressive and a little scary sometimes.
My mum suggested I think of and share memories from each year of my life.
It was a great idea and much storytelling ensued, though I only did up to age 11.
When we got home I decided to grab the first shower.
Just when I had finished rinsing my hair, the huge thunderstorm knocked out the power.
The power was out for nearly 11 hours.
Fortunately we have a petrol powered generated which we can use to run the essentials.
All in all it was a very molpish and memorable dip.
And I mean 'dip' both OTTishly and literally

Now to those creative brothers. I enjoyed the thing that StormAngel made. I wasn't familiar with the original song either, but both versions were treeish. And ED, I read the chapter you posted. It's really steakish, and I am eagerly Waiting for It to read more. So many enticing clues about what is going on in that world. There were some typos, some of which may have already been mentioned by others. I had copied the story to a Word file and marked the typos, but now I can't find that file.
I'll have to read the story again.
One thing I did want to mention is that I think you often use "which" when "that" would be more appropriate
. Eagerly waiting for the next installment!
Neat, I'll let him know. Or I'll forget to because he's off occupied with some hotdog.
Thanks for the feedback. I'll have a look at my which/that usage.
I've already made a fair number of edits to those chapters already
