This past weekend I had a “Rambo moment”. I did something that I would not have thought myself capable of. Ever have such an experience?
Very long story short, I was kayaking a local river and had a fisherman ask me to attempt to free his snag. Well, his reel jammed, and although I got his lure free, I wound up with a huge hook buried in my finger. The fisherman wanted to call an ambulance, but I knew what to do and guided him through the process step by step.
I tried to get him to grasp the hook with needle nose pliers and force the point the rest of the way through. He was unable to do it (and began sobbing). So, I had him steady the hook with the pliers and then I gave a quick jerk with my hand and did it myself. He was eventually able to cut off the barb, then I finished my trip.
I am usually not very “tough” and my gf immediately started making Rambo jokes. So, anyone else have any Rambo moments?
