Have you ever had one of those horrifying, yet incredibly funny stories of things that have happened to you? Well, I have. The house of doom has scarred me for life!I have a cottage on Walloon Lake in Petoskey. We go up there every summer for about 2 months. This summer, Alexis came up for a week and we had a very interesting experience.Walloon Lake is beautiful. It has tons of really huge expensive houses on it, right across from our cottage. The day Alexis got to my cottage, we decided to take our paddle boat across the lake, which is about a mile long, to see some of the houses. Now, let me tell you about this paddleboat...it's a piece of crap. We've had it since we bought the cottage, which is 8 years, so it's not in the best shape.

We were just lying in the boat admiring the house when the wind started to pick up. After a while it got pretty windy, so we decided to turn around and head home. Well, we started home and got really hot, so we decided to jump in and pull the boat along, just for a little while until we cooled off...and that's where the chaos started!When we jumped in, we let in a little water, but not enough to even come close to sinking it. But in order to get back in; we had to lift ourselves up from the water, which caused a TON of water to come into the paddleboat. We had sunk it; the only part that was afloat was the back or it, where we climbed on. So there we were, in 100 feet deep water, a mile from our house, and no one else was on the lake at that time.So by now, where frantically splashing the water out,...
