Shark Bait

when I was a young warthog, i subscribed to National Geographic World, a magazine for kids. all kindsa cool kid stuff in it. one thing that I learned is that sharks are attracted to shiny objects. (at least they were back in the late 70's or early 80's). when i swim in the ocean (which i try to do as infrequently as possible), I remain congisant of this tip and try to dress more like a seal than like a shiny fish.
today, as I was walking around the house getting ready for work, I noticed a shiny object low in my periphery. at first i was alarmed, and began flailing my arms around, hoping to appear larger than i am, so that the sharks wouldn't start circling. it must have worked (otherwise i couldn't be typing this. duh). not even land sharks (shown here, courtesy of google images and SNL back when it was FUNNY...)
at any rate, after i made sure that my life wasn't in danger from shark attack, i saw it again. what the? what could this be? you wanna know? wait for it...
i was my own BELT BUCKLE.
welcome back, old friend.
