Near our ski jumping hill, we have a stagnant stream.
A few nights ago, one of my friends was goofing around, saying he could jump across easily.
When I said it's on for 20 eur, he backed off like a pussy.
Instead, to divert attention from his shame, he challenged me to dunk myself into this mossy stagnant stream for 50 eur.
Soon, another friend joined in and it went from 50 eur to 200 eur. I hesitated a bit and declined, not being nearly drunk enough.
Tonight, we went to the same place, two friends were smoking weed, I was getting drunk. So they offered me the same, but this time I was more drunk,
I drank like 5 beers and brought some wine with me. So I chugged my wine (3/4 litre, 25oz),
smoked a few cigs, stripped down to my boxers and wifebeater and tied my sneakers. Walked to the bank, crouched, jumped in,
made a single stroke (requirement) and I was on the other side. I pulled myself out and spread my arms like a boss.
We laughed like idiots for a few minutes, until it wasn't so funny anymore, because they lost some money.
Jumping in seems like nothing, but I assure you,
this was some really nasty water. We poked the stream bed with a stick, it went deep in there and bubbles were coming out.
Nasty stuff. There were also trails on the moss, could be snake trails.
It was dark, so they couldn't take pictures, but I will post pics of my mossy wifebeater and boxers.
appalled, and at the same time amused friend: how could you do this, you're 26?
