Getting on a Paddle Boat

What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?

I have always liked boats. I like how big they are. I like that they are built to travel from place to place in vast amounts of waters, such as oceans. After I learned about what happened to the Titanic, I knew I would never get on a boat of any kind. That did it for me.


Paddle boats looks fun when someone else are on them having a good time. We were at the State Park where I live. My husband asked me if I wanted to go paddle boating, I told him no. I told him that it was too much water for me to digest if it tipped over. I have never been on the water before because I can’t swim, I have a bad case of hydrophobia. I love looking at the water, but being in it like that will never happen. There is nothing that could make me get on a boat. I don’t care whose maneuvering it, I don’t care how many life jackets, or lifeguards, or lifeboats there are, I will not do it.

I told him he could if he wanted to, but I would not be joining him. That was the last time we were at the State Park. Boats are luxurious, but they are not for me.
