Petey was waiting for something to happen at home, but boredom was getting ready to get the best of him. "The summer is over, and I did not do anything fun", said Petey. It was then and there that Petey came up with an excellent plan. He decided to go on a float trip.
He was not used to "roughing it" so he grabbed a lot of things. He grabbed a cooler, packed sandwiches, magazines, books, his Gamebuddy™, his knife collection, fishing pole, radio, clock, portable dvd player and allergy medication for his 3 hour trip.
As Petey inflated his raft and loaded it, he enjoyed the sweet, fresh air of the woods and the sparkling clear water of the river. He shoved off and went to floating on the river.
In the middle of his magazine article, he noticed he was getting off course, and no wonder. There were some rather large rapids heading this way, and this is where Petey discovered his first mistake. He forgot to pack oars. To compensate, he grabbed a large knife from his collection and used it to steer himself in the right direction.
This was his second mistake.
As he paddled in haste, he accidently sliced a hole on his raft, and the weight of everything took the raft down, and Petey went down the rapids like a pinball in a pinball machine. HE collided with many rocks and passed out.
Moral: Hope floats, but bodies don't.
