River Cruise

Crossing bridges can be scary.

Going under bridges can also be scary.

Especially when you go under a bridge in a tour boat and have something drop on your boat toward the back of the group and no one can really say what it is but it’s some sort of liquid and I think it’s water and it’s probably just water but no one ever really says and someone brings out paper towels and they clean it up so it’s probably just water because no one really complained and they’d definitely complain if it was something other than water, right?
