185--Tortola: Bomba's Surfside Shack
@ CherieSpotting     Feb 21 2004 - 12:21 PST
cherie writes: Bomba is what he is. He’s a dirty old man and the proud owner of Bomba Surfside Shack. Bomba built the place with his own two hands because he liked to drink—and he wanted a job where he could be drunk all day. With weekly BBQs and crazy Full Moon Parties, Bomba doesn’t have the time to spend all his money—he’s having too much fun being lazy.

When I met Bomba he gave me a big bear hug and asked me for my underwear.

What? I was shocked until I saw that his shack (which is a shack in every sense of the word) was decorated with women’s panties. Bomba’s Cadillac even had underwear hanging from his rearview mirror; an air-freshener only dirty old man could appreciate.

Bomba tried to talk me out of my undies but I wouldn’t give them up. “I’ll give you a free Bomba punch,” he told me.

“Is that how men get girls out of their panties these days?” I asked.

Only women will understand this, but at times like these, I always find myself wearing underwear that is “not cute.” So I promised I would bring Bomba a cute pair another day.

True to my word, I arrived the next day at Bomba’s with a foo-foo pair of panties with hearts on them. They were the itchy lacy kind that every woman hates and every man adores. (I’m in a timewarp, but I think underwear should cost a dollar a pair; but I also think that movies should be a buck a night to rent. These days a decent pair is $12 and movie rentals are $4 each.)

So I wanted more than one punch for my frilly panties. I gave them to Bomba and he ordered Joe, Patty and I a round of Bomba punch. Bomba held my panties to his nose (like the dirty old man he is) and said: “These are the best smelling underwear I’ve ever sniffed.”

“Of course they are,” I exclaimed. “I didn’t wear them.”

Bomba was so gracious he stapled my underwear to the front of his bar, and kept the Bomba punches coming all afternoon.

Bomba’s Shack is in Little Apple Bay on the island of Tortola. Tortola (21.5 square miles) is the largest of the pristine British Virgin Islands. Discovered by explorers, invaded by pirates, sought after by buccaneers, Tortola is now a place where sailors dream of becoming castaways. And beach bums like Bomba, can build a shack, get rich, and have women give him their underwear everyday.
