From a fish to a Shark!!
John Sica, a 46 year old high school teacher thats a retired cop. His style isn't!!!! He looks like a beach bum strolling down Kuhio street with the hookers. The 5 crash in and find John in a Crazy Shirt Tshirt with the hibiscus strand going across the chest, faded board shorts and flip-flops. Rita, his very patient and smitten wife shows Thom around, pointing out the various jobs that John started... and started... and started. John has one problem, that's finishing a job he starts. After Rita helps Carson send John's wardrobe down the stairs and the rest of the gang take the furniture out the door, its off to the big city for style, fashion, and Beer!!!!
Gonna be a Store Whore!!
Restoration Hardware: an innovative store that caters to the handyman designer. They carry the stuff to fix a house and the furniture to decorate. Thom picks out some elegantly relaxed pieces to go with the laid back style of John and Rita.
Bloomingdales: Finally Carson gets into the fashion pool and comes up dripping in Style. It's Aloha shirt time, but Carson says simple, limited tones?!?!?! You were Hawaiian Loud and wear it Proud!!!
Blatt Billiards: Jai and Thom drag John down to show him his new poker table top and as an added surprise, they have Phil Gordon there to teach John some "tells" that he can watch for to judge the strength of his poker playing friends hands and maybe finally win at the end of the night.
Jason McCoy Salon: Not real sure if this is the right name, and I do like to credit the different stores... But it's the name of the guy that runs it so there!!! A good haircut to take away the beach bum feel and a manicure and pedicure just cause!!!!
What happened to my grass shack
And as if you didn't know, Thom smoked the house again!!! I like that dining room table a lot. Pickled wainscoting on the walls and an area rug in light beige for that sand feel. Twin lamps on pedestals in the dining room to give it a casino atmosphere and we are ready to play some cards. Ted shows John a club sandwich that they invented just for his game night that sounds good!!!. The hell with dieting!!! After the 5 leave, its off to the kitchen to cook some bacon, spill some beer, crack another one open with the drawer pull and hit the shower. Speed shaving and non emulsifying schootzing later and nice threads and flip-flops and its time for wife and daughter to come home. Rita is happy as a pig in mud, daughter is speechless. They are sent to a night on the town with some good grinds and the boys bend the cardboard. The game starts on beer # 6 so you know that he has lots of little voices telling him to bet. John pays attention to his friends body language for a while but ends up in 3rd place for the night on a hand he should have folded off the bat. Oh well, the beer was good, the company peachy, the night expensive
