Pity Party Over

I survived the weekend, and today I am left with nothing more than the memories, sore muscles, and jostled brain.

Sunday was his family...the fun (rather than obligatory) outing...the day on the boat.

Apparently, there's some sort of tube war going on between my sister-in-law and her husband. Unaware of their unspoken "lemme see if I can throw you" game, I innocently entered the humungo sized tube with the woman.

It hurt.

Hanging on for dear life behind a boat going 45 mph - although it felt like twice that - I cursed the swerving, maniacal madman steering the speedboat (that I could barely make out) thirty feet in front of me...

No. I do NOT have pictures. Sick people.

I lived.

Isn't that good enough for you?

I'm glad...it is for me.

What hurt? Did you stay in the tube or not? Hitting the water at 45 MPH can do worse than hurt. Glad you lived... Been there myself, fortunately our boat couldn't do much more than 30 when pulling a tube - lucky for us. There always seemed to be a sadistic son of a bitch at the helm.

Glad you had a good time at the lake, and welcome back!

I'm glad you lived, too.

I thought you knew better than to get in a tube at your advanced age.

Thanks guys...even you James. ; )

John, you nailed it. I hung on because I was afraid to fall off. We were going so fast that the water felt like asphalt under the tube.

My aching ass...literally. I could really use a deep tissue massage...even if I have to pay for it!

I'll give you a massage for free.
