Outdoor Opinions

In the dentist chair, talking with my hygienist, Hope.

Hope: Do you have any vacation plans for the summer?

Me: I do. We’re headed to Canada in a couple of weeks and later this August my Dad and I are headed to the Boundary Waters.

Hope: What’s the Boundary Waters?

Me: It’s pretty close to heaven on earth. There are no people – just trees, rocks, lakes and fish. Lots of fish. We take our tents, our fishing poles and a canoe and we live in the wild for a week.

Hope: You’re braver than I am. Canoes make me claustrophobic. I think I’d just feel trapped the whole time.

Me: Interesting. I get the exact opposite feeling…
