Fun House
Out on top at Bellows

By Junet A. Terada
Special to The Advertiser

Many years ago, I was bodyboarding at Bellows with my son Tod, who was 10 years old at the time. As I was riding a wave, the strength of the wave started to pull my bikini bottom down my legs. I didn’t want to lose the wave, so I hung on to my board with one hand and held up my bikini bottom with the other.

As soon as I reached the shore, I sank into the water and pulled up my bikini bottom. Then I rose, grabbed my board, rushed out to catch another wave.

My son began hollering at me, "Mom, pull it up, pull it up!"

"Huh?" I hollered back, "I did, I did pull it up!"

"Mom, your top!" he yelled. "Pull up your top!’

The wave had also done a number on my bikini top, but I was too busy trying to hold onto my bikini bottom to notice.
