LIGHTRAY

      EVERY YEAR IT IS A TRADITION THAT MY FAMILY GOES TO ROCKY POINT MEXICO ON FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND. 2020 WAS THE FIRST YEAR IN ABOUT 16 YEARS THAT WE DID NOT GO. ONCE TOURISM RE-OPENED IN 2021 WE WERE EXCITED TO DO SOMETHING ‘NORMAL’ AGAIN. SINCE WE WERE UNVEILING THE NEW WEBSITE FOR LIGHTRAY, MY BROTHER MOE CONVINCED ME TO DO A LITTLE PERFORMANCE FOR THE FAMILY TO MAKE OUR FIRST BLOG POST. NOW MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAT KNOW ME WELL ALSO KNOW THAT I DO NOT LIKE TO PERFORM OR ENTERTAIN AT PARTIES MUCH LIKE THE MECHANIC THAT DOESN’T LIKE TO WORK ON HIS OWN CAR, I DON’T LIKE PERFORMING ON VACATION LOL. BUT I MADE A LITTLE EXCEPTION.
      WORD GOT AROUND THAT I WAS GOING TO SPIN AND MY NEPHEW TITAN, WHO THINKS I’M A SUPERHERO OFF YOUTUBE, WAS SO EXCITED. HE ASKED ME “UNCLE RAY RAY CAN I SEE YOUR LIGHT STICKS?” “YOU CAN SEE THEM ON THE LAST NIGHT, IF I HAVE TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO MY HOTEL ALL THE WAY UPSTAIRS TO GET THEM AND BRING THEM ALL THE WAY BACK DOWN HERE I’LL HAVE TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK UPSTAIRS TO PUT THEM BACK AND THEN COME ALL THE WAY BACK DOWNSTAIRS.” “OK BUT CAN I JUST SEE THEM VERY QUICKLY?”... HE GETS THAT FROM HIS MOTHER. OVER 2 DAYS HE ASKS ABOUT 100 DIFFERENT TIMES AND WAYS IF HE CAN SEE MY ‘LIGHT STICKS’. ON THE LAST AFTERNOON HE COMES UP TO ME AND SAYS IN THE MOST CALM AND SERIOUS LOOK I'VE EVER SEEN OUT OF HIM, “UNCLE RAY RAY, I KNOW YOU SAID I HAD TO WAIT TILL TONIGHT TO SEE THEM, AND THEY ARE FAR FOR YOU TO GET THEM NOW, BUT UNCLE RAY RAY, CAN I PLEASE JUST SEE THEM? UNCLE RAY RAY PLEASE, I NEED TO SEE THEM.” SO I FINALLY RELENTED AND MADE THE TREK ALL THE WAY BACK TO MY HOTEL ROOM TO GET THEM BROUGHT THEM ALL THE WAY BACK DOWN TO WHERE HE WAS STAYING, AND I SHOWED THEM TO HIM. HE LOOKS UP AT THEM AND SAYS “COOL” AND GOES BACK TO PLAYING VIDEO GAMES WITH THE BOYS. THANKFULLY MY NIECE MINNIE WATCHED THE ENTIRE EPISODE TRANSPIRE TO HAVE THE PRESENCE OF MIND TO ASK ME A FEW PITY QUESTIONS TO MAKE THE TREK BACK WORTH IT. THAT NIGHT I MADE TITAN JOIN ME IN A FREESTYLE SESH AS PAYBACK FOR HIS SHENANIGANS!!! VIVA MEXICO!!!
