Dream vs reality
Hands up all of you that have had their first canoe experience with a bunch of friends and had this happen. And then every time someone new tries getting in a boat after that. My precious ears have been shattered so many times by people getting in and out of these things. The screams also return if a dragonfly happens to land on the boat, because there's really no escape, you just have to hope it doesn't move and land on your face. The mortal fear of getting wet aside, rowing is pretty satisfying. Trying to go faster without just turning in circles is quite challenging! Also fun: ramming your friend's canoe. Probably not good for the canoe though. Don't do that. Totally do that.
