I really hate the lake.
Shhhh.... don't tell anyone-- it's kind of embarrassing.
I grew up doing lots of things on the lake from boating to swimming and everything in between. I have always enjoyed jet skis and water skiing-- but I wish I could do it in a pool.
When I go to get into the lake all I can picture is tons of fish poop, little kid pee and other unpleasantries that are dumped into the water everyday. I see fish trying to eat my toes and nasty slimy lake plants brushing my skin.
It gives me the skeevies just thinking about it. EEEEWWW!
The water is all murky and brown. It has a funky moldy smell.
Here's the weird part, I am OK with the ocean. (Even though it tastes disgusting.) Maybe because it's so big and any germ would be canceled out-- I don't know.
I have issues. Clearly.
The problem is, I'm going to have to face them soon enough. The kids really really want to rent a boat and go tubing on the lake this summer. It's one of their only requests. I know I'll cave and do it but I'm going to have to be in a happy place to do it. Yicky!
How about you? Can you handle the lake monster?
