When you tell people you are going sailing, most people think that’s pretty cool.
When you ask them if it’s something they’d like to do too, their attitude often changes. Many people don’t want to sail. It’s just not their thing. But they still tend to think it’s cool that you are doing it.
The funny thing is, of the people who think it’s pretty cool (i.e., most of them), some of them thinks it’s cool enough that they’d like to do it themselves. And those ones get sort of confused when they find out that some people think it’s cool but don’t want to do it themselves.
But sailing’s not for everyone.
Remember that before you go and try to drag your friend onto a boat with you.
