This is a picture of my best friend Jeff, aka, “The Green Angel”.
Okay, now before you start snickering and spreading rumors, let me inform you that Jeff is cool dude and, when the occasion demands, a true “man’s man.” Heck, he’s even been in barroom fights when he lived in Oklahoma. (He got decked by a sucker punch to the face, but that’s a different story.) When he walks into a room, men show their respect, and ladies swoon.
What is going on in this picture is Jeff is modeling his costume for the fourth annual Paris Mountain State Park Polar Plunge, which was held this past January 1st, 2015. He had great time this year, as “Sunny skies and milder temperatures made the plunge a little more tolerable.”
And, as it turns out, Jeff took first place with his outlandish costume, which was when he received his nickname.
After the invigorating swim, Jeff says, “I went home and slept the rest of the day…by the fire…after eating my collard greens, black-eyed peas, corn bread and hog jowl.” What a great way to start the new year!
One final thought I would be remiss not to mention: Jeff is currently single. Yes ladies, that is correct; this stunning hunk of manhood may be yours, just for the asking! But don’t delay, as I’m sure many women will be inspired by this picture to try to arrange a rendezvous with my best friend, “The Green Angel”.
