Capsize matters

In this age of True Love Waits (no relation to Tom Waits), a Sage suggestion for determining sexual compatibility:

I've discovered over the years that canoeing with a partner can generate a pretty good sense of what the sex will be like. Canoeing can be done solo, but it's much nicer with someone else there. Canoeing is different with every new person you're with. Both people in the canoe have to adjust for one another's stroking. Being with someone with a strong, slow, even stroke is very different than being with someone with a quick and excited kind of stroke. But if it's good, soon you get into a nice easy rhythm. Sometimes this happens without even speaking.

And one should perhaps be suspicious of someone who stands up at an inopportune moment.

I've always said take a day-long float trip down the Buffalo River with your intended, and if you're still speaking to each other at the end you should probably get married. lol

I don't even know where to start with this. I guess I should just keep quiet about my canoe being too small to legally sail in Oklahoma City.

But what does this say about kayakers?

Maybe it's just me, but the life jacket always seems to get in the way.
