#4 CANAL BOAT CRUSH
I was 14 and on a canal boat with my family.
It was a sunny day and I was bored.
I was always bored.
This time I was at the front of the long narrowboat and bored.
I was so bored, I put my head back on the roof of the canal boat to look at an approaching iron footbridge from a different angle.
That's the best I came up with.
Even with all the time I had on my hands.
But we were going at 3mph, so this was taking way too long and I sat down on the front bench instead.
Because I was bored.
I looked up and watched the bridge clear the roof by about 3 inches.
I stopped being bored.
What did I learn?
Canal boat life is not for me.
Canal boat death isn't either.
Boredom is good.
3mph is breakneck.
Tomorrow's near death experience, bedroom light switch.
