I think I told you about the older man with the major beer belly wearing the too small swimsuit-his suit could not stay up over his belly and kept sliding down- so he had like 6 inches of butt crack showing-speedos would have been preferable believe me!

I was afraid it was going to slide down further and he was going to show too much in the front if you know what I mean!

I don't know if anything brings as much attention as a Speedo. Will be tough to beat. 8)

The girls act like they are repulsed by them yet at the same time, they are fascinated. Really weird.....

You know I have been racking my brain for a speedo story-and I guess I don't pay that much attention to them-I do remember about 10 years ago we spent a wek in Orando and hit all the parks including a waterpark that was affialted with sea world-we got these special tickets-that allowed us to go there, Sea world and Universal Studios for 5 days.

Well at the waterpark was this guy from somewhere in the middle east. Strong, tall ,muscular and very attractive inhis speedo style suit-until I got near him-he had very bad BO-likehee had not bathed in a year. I was ready to leave that park!

You know Dave, I usually notice things when there is a negative effect there-like the old man with the beer gut and butt crack. If people look okay in their whatever they are wearing I do not pay that much attention.

Now I also remember a young woman-no more then 25 who was at least a size 16-18 and she had on a g-string bikini. I found that pretty gross! Now I know many say-you should be able to wear what you want to-blah-blah-blah and I agree to an extent-but why put yourself in a bad light? This young woman would not had looked half bad in a tankini. In the right suit she could have looked 30 pounds thinner.

so I guess I just don't notice as much when a person looks good in their skimpy attire. I just notice the ones that look bad-or in the case of the one guy-smell bad.

ah I hear you on that smelly front .... last night a guy was chatting me up at the bar with the worst breath ever ... and I'm not a rude person so I suffered through the marathon story .. maybe if he had a speedo on I could have suffered with a bit more glee because he was quite attractive .. hee hee lol

Well, today I am taking my kids to Wet n' Wild. I was a lifeguard there in high school back around 1980-82. The kids have wanting to go there to see where the Legend of Dave the Wave originated. 8)

I will have my camera and get some pics of Speedos for you girls.

Stay tuned....

perhaps a new legend will be born today with your sons carrying on the family tradition !!!

with the incredible humidity here today, a water park sounds pretty cool, but crowed

Default 5 Things NOT to say to a man wearing a SPEEDO

1. Wow, and your feet are so big
2. This explains your car.
3. Are you cold?
4. So this is why you're supposed to judge people on personality.
5. I guess this makes me the 'early bird'.

pretty good TG. Well, I was at Wet n'Wild yesterday and only was able to capture two Speedos with my camera. Should this guy be wearing a Speedo?

Oh, Speedo is the Officail Swimwear of Wet n'Wild. I asked this guy if he knew of the Legend of Dave the Wave. He said, "Dave Who?"

I said, "I worked here back in 1980-82"

He said, "I was born in 1988!"

the guy on the left should DEFINITELY NOT be wearing a Speedo - so he made the right choice!

The guy WEARING the Speedo would look much hotter in board shorts but I'm giving give him a two thumbs up along with a towel!

The Legend of Dave the Wave should be mandatory reading for all new employees at Wet N WILD - I hope you gave him a bit of a smackdown!!

well I used to be a lifeguard / instructor when I was in highschool and you have achieved legendary status here in Canada ...

We had a shrine in our change room with your picture at the centre, a speedo underneath it, a whistle, a buoy and of course - a first aid kit from the swooning and fainting!!!!

By the end of the day, the word had gotten out that Dave the Wave was in the park. Quite a few of the young girls working there ran up asking for autographs. Here I was wearing the Royal Caribbean hat I won in the belly flop contest in my orange Speedo.

After awhile, I had to tell them I was there with my kids and we still had some slides to do and I would come back another time for a guest appearance and maybe even sit in for a session at the Wave pool in the guard chair. They decided to change the name back to the "Dave the Wave Pool"....

I am not sure if Sea World owns it but they are affiliated somehow. You can buy a pass that gets you into several parks including Universal. International Drive is a nightmare. I don't know how people get brainwashed into thinking that is a vacation to be in Orlando, pay stupid money for theme parks and fight the crowds over there.

Even the girls at Wet n' Wild wear Speedos....

and you told us you didn't take very many pictures of the female lifeguards! (VBG)..perhaps you should establish and fund a lifeguard chair with your name on it and have Speedo's corporation underwrite it with you to ensure that all future life guards know the legend of "Dave The Wave"
