Absent's Still Absent...

It rains a lot in Oregon. A lot more than I remember. So much rain that the ocean has become polluted with lots of debris from the stream runoffs. So much pollution that when I run in the foamy ocean water with my brother in the dark, in the night, on Christmas Day, I trip over logs and fall face first in the water. And then huge waves pour over both me and my brother so both of us almost get swept away to sea. And that is where I ruined my cell phone. And so I will be absent from the real world. Again. Just like last year at Christmas. I guess, some Christmas traditions just cannot be avoided.
