  1. this spring break we went to the beach and we rented a kayak. it was my first time going kayaking so I was excited! me and my friend went into the ocean with it. I noticed that our kayak wasn't straight so I told my friend to paddle to make it straight. because #1 kayak rule, always keep the kayak head towards the water to avoid waves flipping us. as we were making it straight, we saw a big 🌊 wave approaching us so I told my friend to hurry the fuck up lol. we didn't make the kayak straight in time so when the wave hit us, our kayak flipped and we fell out into the water. I lost my $1 dollar tree glasses. we had trouble getting back on but we eventually did. I thought I was dead lol.
