Diaper Bobbing, ME News, Vol. 1, Issue 26
Who knew? End of summer fever is a real thing.
So there I was, on Lake Geneva, drifting around in a pontoon boat with family and friends. The water looked so inviting, but I had forgotten my bathing suit back in Lansing. I’d been introduced to “Diaper Bobbing" over the 4th of July weekend, but wasn’t quite sure about it at the time. Another opportunity arose. No bathing suit, probably the last weekend of lake time for me, and encouragement from an 8 year old made for a dilemma. Ok, then. Empty pockets, take off shoes, put on life jacket…. jump in. Fully clothed. Bob around, do water-somersaults, and show my nephew that I really can do a flip-dive. Afterwards, run through Meijer’s semi-dry, in search of new underwear, shirt and shorts. Laugh at myself, and know that we made some good memories. Can’t wait to see those pictures!
