(polar bear cannonball anyone?)
The fact that rivers and lakes have a bottom oddly unsettles me. Is that strange? I want to be able to safely cannonball into the Chicago River from the Michigan Avenue bridge.
Third grade. Family trip to Canada. When my dad would drop the anchor in the lake for us to fish. I found it odd that the anchor would thud so close to our boat below. How can the lake be only nine feet deep? It’s so wide. Would sort of bipedal creature living below reach up and grab our boat? That happens in Canada, y’know.
The same fear holds true for the Chicago River. The average depth of the Chicago River is ten feet. Does that bother anyone? I find it unsettling. I want that sucker deep. Like Lake Michigan, it averages a 279 foot depth. Ahhh, nice deep lake. I can safely cannonball into Lake Michigan.
