So I’m watching “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” and just as they’re about to round the horn, (“Luff the mainsails, and shake out the t’gallants men, the wind is backing!” ) and on the movie, there’s a gigantic storm. Outside my window, with the balcony door open, a storm breaks. On the screen, great waves sheet over the Surprise, even as at that moment, rain is pelting down out of the sky over me, as well.
Oddly enough I watched “Master and Commander” on Thursday night, but nothing like what Dave described happened. However, later that day I was out bird watching and I got shot in the shoulder.
