Much to my alarm and surprise (and disgust), I found myself flung off the jetski and paddling around the middle of Lake Ponchartrain this afternoon. Twice.

So what's so bad about Lake Pontchartrain? It's dirty and it's polluted. The running joke in New Orleans is that you shouldn't eat the 3 eyed fish you catch in that lake.

Which then leads to the next question: why did you even decide to get on a jetski and go out in that lake in the first place?

Answer? I don't know. That'll teach me to drink in the sun. The lure of the jetski and the promises of skimming the water at high speeds overpowered any logical reasoning ability.

Note to self: Don't get on any more jetskis with Russ driving.
