What's the correct term for?

Post by morsey » Mon Nov 07, 2016 12:39 pm

What's the correct term for a person who, if they don't get to paddle whitewater anytime soon, most probably will explode or suffer another grotesque expression?

Asking for a friend, I vex my WW furrowed brow at CIWW to avoid such depths.

Asking for your "Mate"... really Morsey, that's the oldest one in the book.

But the cure for your friend is beer.

Morsey mentions lack of rain. Next day the weather system rolls in. Friends in high places...

No worries, was a lovely dawn run and laps in the upper Dart today. Got off the river to be told the news from across the pond.

The correct term is smug/sad.

Not quite Mike, I sent them a selfie from the car park, to encourage them out next time. They were less than impressed, as you can possibly imagine.

Sounds like you have an addiction problem, so the common term would be 'addict', get some therapy...

What's the term for someone whose totally misread the forecast.
They thought it was on the night before looking at the rain coming in, then decided 9mm that had fallen wasn't enough at 0630, only 3 hours later to see all the gauge go green when other plans have been made.
