She don't ask, and I don't tell. And when I do tell, I DEFINITELY don't tell about how close to death I came.
Wife: How was kayaking today?
Husband: It was good. Pretty mellow. Fun. What's for dinner?
Friend: How was kayaking today?
Kayaker: Dude, it was crazy. We ran the class V+ section. I swam out of this terminal hole directly into an undercut and briefly got pinned underwater but was able to wiggle my way free. Heading back for another run this week. That section is crazy scary but crazy fun.
