We went back to Tobago with Linda and Tom to finish my certification. I didn't really think it was going to be all that. I'm not super into animals and all that equipment seemed pretty confining. But, it really looks like a disney movie down there. Beautiful colors and wacky shapes. Fantastic. But the best part is being weightless. I couldn't stop doing flips. My instructor kept having to point at my eyes to tell me to watch him.
The boat captain's name was Lappy, or that's what everyone called him. Nicknames are popular here, so Tom asked him why he was called Lappy. He mumbled something that we couldn't really understand. So then, he goes, real loud and slow, "MY TOE OVERLAPS. LAPPY TOE."
