Summers were invented for lazy days drifting in a boat and doing some fishing with your best friend. In the case of Bentley and Pierre, their recent adventure is being shared as part of Murphy & Stanley Fractured Fryday’s Hairy Tails. The object is to create a story that includes a particular phrase. This month’s “Special Inclusion” is: “That was the first time I ever…”
I hope that you enjoy today’s story.
A Fish Tale
|"I know what you're thinking; something is fishy here!"|
Pierre: “It was a
Bentley: “Luckily, we were the only ones at the boat launch. We discovered that backing a boat into the water is a lot harder than it looks. We managed but not without slamming on the brakes every inch or two.
Pierre: “Things in the mirror are closer than they appear. I didn’t think it was a good idea to go racing down that slippery incline. Excuse me for being precociously precautious! Once we shoved off, we gave new meaning to the word speedboat. Your ears looked like windsocks!”
Bentley: “I’m going to remember my snood next time. Anyway, we raced to the middle of the lake and dropped our lines. It is important to remain quiet while you’re fishing. That is very hard for some excitable Westies, but I am not mentioning any names. Okay, Pierre?” *hee hee
Pierre: “Your cork kept going underwater. I thought that you had a fish on the line.”
Bentley: “Fishing is all about presentation. You have to think like a fish. I was toying with their fishy emotions by making my worm dance. Fish love ‘em a dancing worm.”
|"We are gonna need a bigger net."|
Pierre: “I guess that explains your ginormous catch. What was that you were hollerin’? It was something about calling the Guinness Book of World Records. The biggest fish ever pulled from this lake, you said.”
Bentley: “I’m telling you that fish was incredible. I saw it jump out of the water and it looked like Moby Dick. You know that I wrestled with it for almost thirty minutes. It finally tired itself out so that I could reel it into the boat. The entire thing was like a scene from that show “Wicked Tuna.” I wasn’t catching tuna; I was after catfish.”
Pierre: “It’s the only kind of cat that we can go after and not get into trouble. I really thought you had a huge fish on the line. Obviously, fish look bigger before you actually land them.”
|"I guess the bigger net isn't necessary!"|
Bentley: “Scoff all you want, but that was the biggest fish I ever caught. The fact is that was the first time I ever caught a fish! I’m pretty sure that I will be on the Catfish Pro Circuit soon.”
