i'm PUMPED!! this is something i've been wanting to do for a while.
it's a 1.5 hour flat water kayak paddle on the catawba river followed by
campfire-lit beer tastings and light hors d'oeuvres on jones island.
apparently e & our friend ... well, we will call her a.s....
did not know what they were getting themselves into...

the following conversation took place last night while e & i were sitting on the couch...
me: "man i can't WAIT for our kayaking brew cruise!!"
e: "wait... i thought this was a brew cruise like on a boat. do you mean i have to paddle!?"
me {starting to realize e has no idea we will be kayaking} "yes, you have to paddle your kayak or your probably not going to get too far"
e: "you mean we won't be on a boat where i can wear a cute sundress & drink beer?"
me {really laughing now} -"NOOOoo, you definitely can't wear a sundress in your kayak... well i guess you could, but that would be interesting"
e: "WHAT?!!?? i'll have my own kayak... and i'll have to make it move?"

...e is now in slight panic mode & has now proceeded to message a.s. on facebook to advise her of the situation at hand while the two of us are laughing hysterically... she & a.s. are scheming...

e: "a.s. wants to know if there are 2 people kayaks"
me: {i have now completely lost it now & can't get it together} - "probably not... just one seaters"
e: "ok, now i'm nervous, NOT excited. this is not okay. you tricked me! there needs to be less kayaking, more drinking"
me: "hahahahahahaha"

ohhhhh man it was funny. e & a.s. would probably agree with me in saying that they are not really the "outdoorsy" type :) mind you, e works for an outdoor clothing company so i think she's secretly excited to tell them that she is branching out into something new & outdoorsy.

seriously folks... this could make for a REALLY good story later.
our trip is set for june 6th. i'll definitely keep you posted on how this goes.
i'm secretly hoping that they'll love it & want to go more often.

Haha, I would have probably been like your friends on this one, I don't know if this is the first thing that would come to mind when I hear "microbrew cruse". Sounds fun, though!
