Time it took me to warm up to these sea creatures: 5 minutes
Kisses given to a non family member: 1. To a stingray no less. It gave a great back massage, what can I say?
Alleged years of good luck coming to me from that stingray kiss: 7
Problems getting thru customs: 0. The agent seemed to think the Caveman was military.
