When my nephews go out tubing, they aren’t satisfied to be pulled around the lake, no matter how fast the ride or how high the waves.
They have to show their dominance by wrestling the person on the other tube into the lake. Victory goes to the boy remaining on the tube.
I don’t get this at all.
But I know where they learned it. When my brothers, brother-in-law and husband got their turn to ride the tubes, it is a matter of seconds before these old guys are up on their tubes trying to knock each other off too.
They are never content to ride. The more dramatic the wipe out, the more fun they have.
This has to be a male thing.
When my sister-in-law and I decided to go for a ride, we begged my fifteen year old nephew to drive slowly and to try not to hurt us or knock us off the tubes.
We just wanted a nice, relaxing ride.
Never trust a fifteen year old boy.
