I’m posting this because while definitely not my “funniest” moment by a long shot,for some weird reason it just popped into my head.

Back when I was a teenager, I was out canoeing with a bunch of others. I always considered myself very outdoorsy and capable of survival in the woods. But for some reason this particular group ( mix of girls and boys) always treated me like a bit of a clutz, which annoyed me because,like I said, I considered myself far more capable than them.

Soooo, there we were on the open water and to this day I don’t know why, I decided to switch canoes. Yes…by jumping – not stepping which is dumb enough – but jumping, from one to the other!

I was expecting the person in the other canoe to come closer so I could switch. I’m sure you can guess how this ended: me in water them laughing their heads off! To make matters worse I was dressed in heavy fall clothing.

I have no idea what prompted this impulsive decision – except perhaps my adhd traits and most likely explains their perception of me. I can laugh now, but at the time naturally I felt like a complete idiot.
