He heaved his arm off the ground until it flopped over his face, giving his aching eyes a little shady relief. As he lay in the sharp, prickly sand, he reached with his other hand to get his car keys. A white-hot thought burnt its way through his brainís neurons: WHERE ARE MY PANTS? Which was followed by: WHERE IS MY UNDERWEAR? Grudgingly, he stood up, naked from the waist down and looked at the morning suns. Suns, he thought, isnít that just perfect.
