So...I own a houseboat in the Benicia Marina...my son has been staying on for the past year and it is time for him to move closer to his work..thus leaving the boat available for another adventure seeking person. I was to show the boat to someone today at one and decided it might be a good idea to take the vacuum on board since a large, white, fluffy dog lives on the boat too. At ten minutes to one I was done...hmmm...the vacuum is a bit bulky...hmmm...I will just hoist it onto the doc...hmmm...inertia got a hold of me...the vacuum and I both went sailing across the narrow walkway into the icy cold marina waters! I had on four shirts, overalls, leggings and wool felted dansko clogs. Needless to say I was a heavy lass...I went all the way under...soaking my dreadlocks too! Now...how to get my slowly sinking body out....there was no ladder there I can tell you...so I kept thinking of all those action movies where the skinny girl ends up being unbelievably strong..."you can do this" I kept thinking to myself. One leg over a rope, the other leg over the rope...one leg really stretched high onto the deck, the other leg onto the deck! Ta Da! I have not had this much fun in I don't know how long! And I was out of the water just in time to show the boat to the interested party....now that is a good story...and true!
My phone did not survive tho, it is recovering in a bag of rice...
