Totally Awkward Tuesday- Tubing

Once again, I will be participating in Totally Awkward Tuesday with Tova Darling. So here is mine.

Everyone should know who Dollface is. If you don't, I'll tell you again. Dollface is my boyfriend of almost two years. Anyway, Dollface always has an end of the year party after school lets out. This year, his mom was away for the party, so we had to do the party at his dad's house.

Now, Dollface's dad is kick butt, I'll tell you that. I've never met a dad, other than mine, that was seriously THAT awesome.

Anyway, Dollface's dad has a boat, and we were going to go tubing. The day before we actually had to RETRIEVE the tube from his mom's house, in the rain. No, that wasn't the awkward part. That was the fun part.

So, the day of the party came. It was generally a fun day. I taught some people how to kayak, I watched my friends try to sing on Rock Band, I hate a lot of food. It was fun. Then, it was TUBING TIME.

So we went out on the boat. There were six of us on the boat. Dollface, myself, two of Dollface's friends, Dollface's dad, and one of my best friends.

So we got out on the middle of the lake. Dollface and Dollface's friend #1 went out on the tube. Watching them got me scared. I don't like to take risks. Regardless of moxie meaning courage, I do not like to go out on things that may very well kill me. Anyway, after they went, one of my best friends and Dollface's friend #2 went on. Again, watching this more and more got me scared sh*tless. Then finally, it was my turn.

Dollface and I went on the next time. Now, before I go on with the story, I must give you a very important detail. I was wearing a bikini with shorts on top of the bottoms.

Okay, so we went out on the tube. We kept going faster, and faster. I was getting more and more scared for my life. I kept yelling "DOLLFAAACE!!" when I almost fell off. This happened many times. I'll tell you, I was holding on for my dear life.

Then finally... I fell off...

And so did my bathing suit bottoms.

LE GASP! You say. Yes, that's what I was thinking while I was drowning underneathe the tube. Before I got back up to the surface, I pulled them back up quickly. I was just praying that no one saw.

Luckily, I got back to the top alive. The life jacket helped hide the fact that my bikini half fell off too. No one would have known, unless I asked.

And if you know me well, I did. But they didn't see anything, and they just started laughing. Then, to make the situation even more awkward, Dollface's friend #1 yelled out:


Right in front of Dollface's dad.

Totally. Awkward.

Lol. I don't know what tubing is, but it sure does sound exciting!

Tubing is when you have this big floaty thingy, with handles on the back to hold on to, tied to the back of a boat. The boat goes super fast and it's really wild.

My ex made me go tubing once. I don't know how to swim. He thought it was funny when I fell off the tube (which we all knew would happen) to watch me panic and flail.

I feel your pain.

Either I'm old, or "tubing" just means something different where I'm from. Tubing, in my experience, has always meant relaxing in the tube while floating down a meandering, slow river with your other friends each in their own tube, and often with a separate tube for the cooler which is tied to one or more of the other tubes, while drinking lots of beer or margaritas. It is always fun and relaxing.

But the boat thing sounds very exciting and fun. I may have to try it sometime.

And if the boat thing is too much excitement for you, you should try it my way sometime. You might like it! :) (I always do).
