Let's Hear It For The Boys
Summer has arrived.
It has nothing to do with the calendar. It has everything to do with when these guys go out and spend a Friday on the lake and I meet up with them at the end of the day. It started six or seven years ago when I decided to take a day off and go out on the boat with a few of my girlfriends. There were just four of us that first year. We were cruising, floating, drinking, talking and having a good time. Several times during the day we passed a boatload of guys out doing the same thing we were doing. By the end of the day we had boarded each other's boats, given out false names, flirted and had a good time.
The next year, I invited a few more girlfriends and commandeered a second boat. Wouldn't you know - the guys were out there too! Ever since then we've tried to coordinate our dates. I haven't had a boat for the last four years, but we ladies get together, take the day off and do whatever pleases us. At the end of the day, we meet the boys at the dive on the north end of the lake. This year was the first year that our dates didn't coincide, but I was specially invited to join the boys at the end of the day.
Let's hear it for the boys.
