    Has this happened to you

    So here is what happened. A few weeks ago i finely get a chance to go diving a year after i got my open water, and it was great. Two weekends in a row i was at the quarry with a new friend who is also an open water instructor. I learned a lot and did not have any problems. Now fast forward two weeks. My wife and I decide to go out on our boat one Saturday (no Diving just riding around and some swimming) as it will probably be the last chance before cold weather sets in. We find a nice quite cove and anchor the boat. I stand up on the back of the boat and with out thinking of what i am doing I do a giant stride. This is how I always jump off the boat, But this time when I hit the water I tried to take a breath and there was no regulator in my mouth. I came up coughing and my wife just laughs at me like I am the biggest idiot in the world.

    What did I learn from this?
    1. Scuba gives you the ability to swim with the fishes.
    2. You have to have the gear on for this ability to work.
    3. Add this to last years problem of trying to start the boat without hooking up the lanyard to the kill switch and i have concreted the idea in her head that she married an idiot.
    4. Scuba gear goes with me when ever i go near a lake.

    Those are sure signs of addiction my friend. There is no cure but it is best to continue to feed that addiction.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
