"One Day I Slowly Floated Away"

(by Eisley) One Day I Slowly Floated Away - Room Noises



As promised, I have a little story that I remembered while I was floating on the lazy river at the water park last week! And it has been WAY too long since I've posted something in my:



Our family went to Schlitterbahn about three or four years ago, and Cody & I were enjoying The Torrent. It's like a lazy river on steroids ~ it has a couple of big waves, and if you catch them right you'll go pretty far. I usually prefer to ride on top of the tube, but for some reason I wasn't doing that at the time of this particular incident. I had my legs straight down through the tube & only my upper body was above water. {This is relevant, I promise!}

There was a teenage boy swimming nearby with his girlfriend, and he went under water right as we approached the big wave. I was leaning back against the inside of the tube with my arms on the handles when I caught the wave. It carried me pretty far, and I came down off the wave right as the teenage boy was coming to the surface...inside my innertube!!

I had seen it coming, but there wasn't really anything I could do to avoid it. So there we were, suddenly face to face in my tube! He looked at me all shocked and flustered & said, "Oh my gosh! Sorry!" real quickly before he went back underwater & swam over to his girlfriend! He looked back over at me & apologized again. I was laughing so hard that I could barely say, "It's OK. We're cool."

For the rest of the day, I would occasionally think of it & bust out laughing! Have you ever had somebody pop up inside your innertube? Or some other embarrassing water park moment? I'd love to hear your stories!!

LOL... oh my goodness! That is crazy! I have never been to a water park, so I have no wild stories like you do! ;)
