My sister talked me into going tubing.
We'll take the kids, she said. It will be fun.
Cold weather. Big hills. Falling. Fun.
So I bought the tickets and reserved the hotel room.
I told the kid. He was definitely excited. He tried to explain just how much fun it would be.
"Look mom, you hold your tube like this. You run and flop down on your belly just before you get to the cliff.......
Too bad the tickets are non-refundable.
