It Happens to the Best of Us I Guess

So, my claim to fame is that I don't get wet when I kayak. My friend and fellow kayaker couldn't believe it until she kayaked with me.

Sometimes I wade into the water up to my ankles, but that's it. I just don't get wet. I kinda hop into my boat, and from then on I stay dry.

I bet you can see where this is going, huh?

Yep, I had just spent the morning kayaking with my school kids (my annual I-get-paid-to-kayak day) and paddled back to the ramp to load my boat. I was on the crumbly concrete ramp (up to my ankles) trying to pull my boat in when it happened. My foot slipped, my flip-flop blew out, and I ended up on my butt in the lake.

OH, the humiliation!

Except, there wasn't anyone around to see it. Ha! Not even my friend who would've paid for a view of it!

No one need ever know...but I facebooked her later and told her.

My "dry run" is over. Now I'm the same as all you mere mortal kayakers.
