Weird tourist lady

I went out sailing on the Charles again. So much fun!! Pretty uneventful except for my stopping to help a mother and son who had capsized. They finally righted the boat, but it was filled with water, so I threw them my bailer, then sailed off, my mitzvah of the day complete.

At the end of my sail, I was unrigging my boat when a woman on the walking path on Memorial Drive yelled down, "Would you take a passenger?" I wanted to yell back, "What do I look like, lady? Green cab?" but held my tongue, instead telling her that I had just come in, I wasn't setting out.

These boats are small boats. I can't imagine inviting myself on one with someone I didn't know. People are weird.
