Reason #2: If he had a free Saturday, he would prefer to spend it inside, reading and napping. Granted, it was winter, but I think that was his sentiment year round. I prefer to spend free Saturdays doing stuff, even in the winter. I would have ended it soon enough if he had interfered with kayaking when the weather got nice.
Speaking of kayaking, I have signed up for a kayak training session this weekend. Do I need training? Not necessarily. Do I need to meet new people who might be fun and outdoorsy? Yup. And cute, and male? Definitely. Absolutely. I am fully prepared to be disappointed by the number of 65 year olds enjoying their retirement by picking up a new hobby, but you know, they might have cute sons... Hell, they might even have ugly sons. That would totally do right now.
