My father suggested that it might be fun to go out on the lake yesterday afternoon. I was initially reluctant, because I had been working all day and going out on the lake for a couple of hours didn’t sound terribly appealing. However, I didn’t want to disappoint my father, so I agreed to go out on the lake and tool around for a few hours before dinner.
He hooked up the boat trailer and went to the gas station to fill up his gas tank for the trip. We ended up having to go get some two cycle oil as well, because it turned out that he had already used his last bottle. Finding some oil meant taking even more time before launching the boat. By the time we got the boat launched, it was getting to be evening time and the mosquitoes on the lake were terrible.
