The beach: Wednesday

If everybody had an ocean

Across the U.S.A.

Then everybody'd be surfin'

Like Californ-I-A

You'd see 'em wearin' their baggies

Huarachi sandals, too

A bushy bushy blonde hairdo

Surfin' U.S.A. 

We'll all be plannin' out a route

We're gonna take real soon

We're waxin' down our surfboards

We can't wait for June

We'll all be gone for the summer

We're on safari to stay

Tell the teacher we're surfin'

Surfin' U.S.A.

Everybody's gone surfin'

Surfin U.S.A.*

[awkward pause]

Is there a song about, um, the headless horseman? Because that was my first thought when I saw that I'd caught this picture of Grant about to dive under a wave.

And then, just a second later, all we could see were a few toes.

BREAKING NEWS: I Googled it, and there is, in fact, a song titled "The Headless Horseman" that was featured in the Disney film The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. But it's kind of gruesome:

With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop
He's out looking for a head to swap
So don't try to figure out a plan
You can't reason with a headless man.

So we're just gonna pretend I didn't find it.
