We took one of our friend's 7-year old sons waterskiing this morning. After a fall we were instructing him on how to get up. It was right at that moment I smelled a very distinct dead fish odor, which the boy also noticed.
"Why does the water stink? This is gross!!"
By now, the adults in the boat had realized he was in the middle of about 10 dead fish quickly bobbing close to his face.
I don't think we have ever pulled a skiier up quite so fast--thank god he got right up. I wouldn't have wanted to witness that scream.
We got a text later that night from his father.
"After 2 baths he still smell like dead perch. At least he doesn't have a girlfriend."
