Rowing practice-Ruth

We were eating a cheese and mushroom sandwich.  What we always ate after we were done with rowing practice.  I was very wistful and my friend asked me why I was in such deep thought.  “I don’t know,” I said while I wrinkled my brows.  But I did know.  I had dropped my oar in the water.  I couldn’t believe it.  It was one of my worst rowing days, ever!  The coach yelled at me. “What’s the first rule of rowing?! Don’t drop your oar!!” Duh. It’s not like I didn’t know that. Not like I did it on purpose.
