Naturally he reaped the benefits of being in a band/athletic* and would do this move where he plays the bass eyes closed while making duck lips which I thought looked fucking stupid but will admit the females in the audience seemed to love.
He often would perform his duck lipped bass playing duties shirtless.
in his 40's he now plays bass in his church's band on sunday services. While no longer shirtless he'll still do the eye's closed ducked lipped move and I swear the females in the congregation fucking love it.
He reserves his shirtless-ness to when he plays tennis**.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
*He was a professional/sponsored skateboarder in the late 80's in southern california (and naturally dabbled in surfing and the infancy of snowboarding) which meant even as a high school junior he'd bring home these stereotypically hot SoCal girls that were basically this beautiful scary alien species to my 7 year old pudgy dark asian with a bowl cut self.
** prologue: last year I visited my older brother in San Francisco and he beat me handily at tennis (while playing shirtless), saw we were near a random skate park and borrowed a kids skateboard and dropped his 40+y/o self right into a halfpipe/bowl while wearing a full suit and tie (we were driving back from a wedding), did his duck-lipped eyes closed bass playing while the supposedly Christian women swooned in church, and my mom ignored me while talking to him on a skype call all in one weekend.
