Here's the thing with whales: they are beautiful, majestic creatures and I would love to go whale watching someday. But I'm always afraid that they'll just come along and with their MASSIVE size, sort of nudge the boat and then you'll be in the ocean with all the weird creatures, sharks, and drowning. When I tell my friends about this fear, oh how they laugh. "Why aren't you afraid of sharks instead of whales?" The two fears are not mutually exclusive, guys. But anyway, in the video above you'll see that while no one fell into the ocean, a humpback whale definitely NUDGED a small boat on the ocean while surfacing.
So there! Vindication!
This weekend, I'll be going up north for a birthday, knitting a lot, and reading. What are your plans? What are your irrational fears? Did you just add whales to the list?
