Many of the beaches in South Maui were closed to swimmers yesterday and today because of a shark attack on a vacationing snorkeler yesterday. The victim survived to tell the tale, and I watched her on television tonight in a wheelchair with bandaged foot giving her version of the story. I also blogged about this today on another blog, Who's Yo Mama? if you'd like to read more details.
What rather amused me was is what she related on television--and I paraphrase--that when she came stumbling out of the water yelling, 'Shark, shark!', people just kinda gave her a blank look, and the thought crossed her mind that they might be thinking she was making up a shark story or that they were perceiving her as a crazy woman. Once they saw her blood, then they were convinced!
