Gilmore... Gilmore.... Gilmore....
Are there some mornings you wake up and just don’t want to go to work? Where the tasks of the day seem so pointless, so… just… pointless!
For me never. BeachGrit is my work! The second happiest place on earth™!
But for you I can imagine and for Stephanie Gilmore too. The world number five has withdrawn from the Cascais Pro, stop number eight on the Samsung Galaxy Tour brought to you by Paul Speaker.
The World Surf League issued a press release reading:
Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), six-time WSL Women’s Champion, has withdrawn from the Cascais Women’s Pro due to illness. The Australian is suffering from an ear infection and has not been cleared to travel by her physicians.
“Really disappointed to have to withdraw from Portugal,” Gilmore said. “I felt like I was finally in a rhythm at Trestles and looking forward to carrying that momentum to Europe. Hoping to heal up in time for France. Good luck to all the girls in Cascais.”
But is she really really disappointed or just pretend disappointed? A picture has surfaced, just hours ago, that shows Steph having a seemingly good time in Indonesia. A comment underneath the picture reads “Portugal is way more fun!! Not!!”
Is there a way to get to get to the island nation without traveling?
But maybe also Stephanie Gilmore just did not feel like going to work.
I once worked at Disneyland (the first happiest place on earth™) driving submarines and didn’t feel like going to work so called in sick with tuberculosis. The next day when I showed up I was met by very higher up health officials who escorted me to a small office. I told them my tuberculosis was no big deal, walking tuberculosis, but they got very angry because I drove submarines which are really small, airtight petri dishes.
(I didn’t really have tuberculosis just tested positive because I had been exposed.)
In any case, let’s wish Steph a speedy recovery!
But while we are wishing… let’s also wonder who’s who in this Ferris Bueller remake!
Steph is Ferris, of course.
Who is Ferris’s sister Jeannie? Maybe Silvana Lima (rough entitled attitude).
Who is Mr. Rooney? Of course Paul Speaker!
Who is Mr. Rooney’s secretary Grace? Dave Prodan!
Who is Charlie Sheen? Chris Ward?
