Re: The Fiasco
Now if any of you have ever been around horses, you'll know that they can be very picky about who gets on their backs. If they don't trust you, don't think you know what you're doing, or don't like you - they'll do everything they can to buck you off. But it's what they do next that is eerily similar to this situation. Typically, after they throw you, they'll trot a short distance away and start grazing - keeping a wary eye on you. Kind of mocking you.
Was that what just happened?
Sounds like you tried to mount from the right side instead of the left.
Then came The Question: "So, have you guys ever sailed before?" The humiliation was complete.
Oooooooohh - and from a POWERBOATER yet - that's gotta hurt.
Chin up Smackdown Daddy, you got a great
name for the boat out of it.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
