Message In A Bottle


I put a message in a bottle and sent it into the Lakshadweep Sea today.

While enjoying a large bottle of Kingfisher at Coconut Grove restaurant at Lighthouse Beach in Kovalam, Kerala, deep in southern India, I felt the sudden urge to leave my mark; to let someone know that I had indeed been here. That I'd seen a majestically beautiful part of India I'd only heard and read about, but never known, until now.

I longed for my message to be profound. I want the person who eventually finds it to be moved, and changed, after reading it; to never be the same from that day forward.

It came to me, almost immediately.

Written in all its glory on a tiny sheet of paper, signed "- eyebleaf," I penned one, single, solitary word: "Playoffs!!1"

The year is 2013. While celebrating on the shores of Lake Ontario eyebleaf trips over a glass bottle...

That is an awesome idea. I'd do it but I don't think i'd ever get a chance to go all the way to India

If that bottle somehow turns up on the shores of Lake Ontario in 5-10 years, you should start freaking out!
