"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."It is summertime, this June-thing. Summer in all her innocent glory before she's been fondled and smirched by roving August. June is still a blossom-eyed, lovely green thing and the weather in June makes me feel like doing lazy things like going to the beach or lying in the grass in my front yard with my face buried into the earth just sniffing the greenness. Star-gazing, ice cream, and wading in creeks and rivers go right up there on the list. June is a watery month - not watery as in rainy, but watery as in Having To Do With Wetness of All Sorts. And when I think of water - be it a river, creek, puddle, gutter, lake - I think of boats and boating.- Kenneth Grahame The Wind in The Willows
That's your assignment.
Boats & Boating
What any of you will actually do with this topic is a thing that makes me eager to see. I can't wait for your entries and I'll probably try to write something myself on this topic. Remember, the main thrust of Chatterbox is a dialog exercise so don't get stuck on thinking, "My story does not deal in Boats. Whatever did she pick Boats for?"
Think hard, think splish-splash. Think Boats. I'll be waiting with my link-up and an anchor o'er my shoulder.
