Who Would Have Thought?

July 13, 2014

I think I crossed an item off someone’s bucket list this past week.  It wasn’t on my list, (I don’t really have one.) but I think it was on someone’s.  I went jet skiing for the first time.


I had a good time, but it was not anything I would have chose to do.  I have a cousin from Illinois in town.  He suggested that we take the twins out on jet skis, if I could get off work.  Jet skiing is more Ivy’s thing, so I tried to get her to take my place.  Ivy informed me she had to teach a class in the store.  Sometimes owning that store makes you go jet skiing, whether you want to or not.


I could have lived my entire life having never been on a jet ski, but I couldn’t find a way not to go.  I know most people would love to take off from work, go to the lake and spend the day in the water.  Nope, not me.  I don’t do water.  Water is cold.  Water is seldom hot.  I don’t like to swim.  Swimming gets my beard wet.  I don’t like to sit in hot tubs.  I don’t like to ride boats. I’ve never water skied, and most likely won’t.  I take showers, but they are really quick ones.


As I see it, the problem with water is that it is wet.  I’ve been wet, it isn’t that great for me.  I’m not sure I even like to drink water.


I had several aquariums when I was a kid.  I saw what fish do in water.  Why would I want to play in that?  Never in my life, or any one else’s has a shark attacked on land.  They do it only in the water.  The Titanic sank in water.  Had it been on land no one would have ever made a movie about it.


Speaking of the Titanic, Elaine and I went on a cruise once.  It was a gift from an employer.  I went because Elaine wanted to go.  Have you noticed I am always doing something for others?  We spent the better part of a week on a ship surrounded by water.  I spent a bunch of time on the deck looking out at water.  When you are looking at water it doesn’t matter if it is in a glass or splashing around, it still looks like water.  Needless, to say, I’ve been on my last cruise, except maybe that Alaskan one.  I think I could look over the top of all that water and see Alaska, I would have that on a bucket list, if I had one.


If you guys want, send me the items on your bucket list that you really don’t want to do.  I will try to cross off an item or two. That’s what I do; I help people.  If the item involves water, I will try to get Ivy to do it, she needs to get out of the store.


Our crazy lives!
