Weak Wrap: Jamie O'Brien Is Dead... To Me

COASTALWATCH | WEAK WRAP

Video by Danny Johnson

This one time I was in Hawaii and I was having trouble sleeping. Not cause the waves were all gnarly and crashing loudly onto the shore all night long, it was most probably jet lag or my insomnia playing up, so I popped a sleeping pill. You know those things that don’t actually work because they’re all just sedatives and sedation and sleep aint' the same thing? I woke up the next day feeling like the balls of a gorilla (remember the sleeping pill? That’s why). Fog-headed and dumber than normal, I headed down to The Pipeline to watch the contest. I found a spot and started watching, but I was mostly just thinking about how many coffees it was going to take for me to feel less gorilla bally. Then, because I was so out of it, I slipped and almost fell over. From standing still to almost falling over. As it happened, I heard someone from behind me loudly laughing and making fun of me. I turned around and it was Jamie O’Brien standing about three metres away in his front yard. Fair enough, it probably looked pretty funny and I was pretty much standing in his bedroom when it happened, but there was something about that laugh. I’ve been trying to get back at him ever since.
