Your best bet is to avoid the scenario altogether, either by coming down with a deadly case of Xactlees disease -- or by getting in the first punch and dragging your parents, girlfriend, and grandmother (God bless her) to Splash Egg-Citement at Quiet Waters Park (401 S. Powerline Rd., Deerfield Beach). How does that work? Well, convince them that water games including the totally rad Ski-Rixen is a lot like baptism. Well, sort of. Yes, there will be stuff for kids, like a water egg hunt, bounce house, and face painting. But the Ski-Rixen is an Easter tradition (Jesus loves it) that all ages can enjoy. Picture wakeboarding, but instead of the boat you get tethered to a crane. You can jump ramps, make huge crests of water from your board, and can catch some serious air. Best of all, its cheap: $6 for the Egg-Citement activities, $18 per hour (it gets cheaper as you ride more) for the Rixen.
