Personally, I've never really understood the sheer excitement my friends have for Shark Week. Don't get me wrong, I love sharks as much as the next guy. Jaws was one of my favorite movies growing up, but my friends treat this week as a national holiday. They even buy shark-themed clothes to wear all week. Sometimes I even feel left out. One thing I know for sure is that I normally don't hear from them for that entire week. If that's how you are as well, your Christmas is coming up August 9th.
