Almost true tall tales
I've been intending to commit many of these events and situations to paper for a long time - and in fact may have to wait a bit longer to find the time to do this. The general idea is that we all experience situations in life that seem implausible, hilarious, deeply moving, or whatever. Of course, one cannot let the truth hinder the course of an excellent tale, embellishments being the better part of valour.
Here are some tales I will hopefully get down on paper (i.e. my website) before too long:
Shark bait - swimming across Byron Bay in Queensland, Australia ?May 2005?
Going to sleep for five hours during the middle of a footrace ?Sep04?
Taking my friend from Germany to Sudbury Ontario in the month of May to see the Snow ?May04?
The fish that gave me a presentation - Lago di Como, Italy ?summer 2000?
Hike by compass with the bears - Saguenay region of Québec ?summer 1981?
Drowning by default - Mount Royal College pool ?December 1978?
Recreational dive - the crab who picked me out
Recreational dive - I didn't know people made salads out of lobster
