Hump Day Kick Start – Coating the Deck Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

Sorry but not sorry. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a writing prompt like this.

So tell me, who is he? What is he doing? What or who is he looking at? What is he thinking? Is he just the local surfer boy who dreams of riding a beast of a wave? Maybe his opponent in an upcoming surfing contest has him distracted with her beauty and her competitive taunts. Could he be deep undercover, infiltrating a drug-smuggling ring? Or an instructor who takes tourists to the best spots? What if he is impersonating a guide and fleecing customers, or worse. On the flip side, he could be the tourist, a writer for a travel magazine, and his guide is a feisty local who tempts him to give up his wandering ways. Maybe he just ran out of sex wax, hoping the cute surfer girl nearby would share hers.

You know how this works. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.

    Oh, this story is very straightforward (sorry I didn’t return here yesterday).
    – – –
    Timothy was just outside chillin’ and messing with the fins on his board.
    To Drusilla, however, it appeared Timothy was loafing.
    “Did you run those errands yet?” she asked.
    “Not yet.”
    Drusilla had heard those words many times. “Why not?”
    “Something came up.”
    “And what,” she inquired, “was so important that you blew off those errands?”
    “Uh… it’s a surprise,” he said, punting.
    “Surprise for whom?”
    “Surprise for you, dawlin’,” he replied.
    “So what’s the surprise and why now?”
    Timothy strained his memory for a viable reason and realized the following day was especially significant. “Your birthday!” he said, brightening. “Yeah, I was thinking up a real big treat for your birthday tomorrow.”
    Drusilla glared with undisguised hostility. “Tomorrow is NOT my birthday, you creep.”
    “Well it’s somebody’s birthday,” he countered.
    “Yes,” she sneered, “tomorrow is the birthday of your EX-girlfriend.”
