Last Sunday, I headed down to Meramec State Park near Sullivan, Mo., to do a little fishing.
Yep. Me. Fishing. Hard to believe.
I'll be honest, at first it was terrible. I had to lead Maverick through brush down to the river, all the while carrying a cooler and chairs and fishing poles. And then got my shoes and socks all wet walking through a creek. And then there were spiders everywhere and I hate spiders. Oh, and did I mention it was like 100 degrees outside? Yep, that first beer was much appreciated.
But after a little while, I actually started to enjoy myself. And I caught a fish. Which was pretty freakin' awesome.
And why yes, that is a pink fishing pole. I got it at Walmart for $11.96.
