stumped

What a fun trip! It was like summer camp.. but for adults! For my birthday we rented a canoe and rowed 10 miles down the russian river. Its not as easy as you might think. There are really scary tiny rapids and narrow passage ways. We crashed into more than one bush. At one point... as we came around the bend... there was a downed redwood just under the surface which michelle saw but neglected to tell me. The top of the tree was poking out a bit and we passed over the largest branch. SCREEEEEEEEEEEECH. STUCK. On a tree.. in the middle of the river. What followed was a bit of banter between the two of us. The kind of banter where somebody's feelings get hurt. The kind of language you shouldn't use around 5 year olds. FINALLY, After some twisting and turning.. yelling and cursing... pushing and pulling.. wiggling... jumping... rocking... hopping... poking... shoving.. a paddle fight.............. we set ourselves free.

That called for a nice cold beer.

And some apologies...

I don't know the kind of banter you refer to. Me & mine, we are always polite and civil to each other.

P.S. NOT!!!

Our arguments are always completely juvenile and I usually end up yelling YOU SMELL even though he doesn't...
