A Fishy Story

While enjoying a walk in the woods near a beautiful lake A huge spider jumped from a tree and landed on my shoulder Taking quick action I hurriedly jumped into the lake and the spider was gone But then as I started walking back to the shore I felt something wiggle in my pocket Well that had me a little worried too, so quickly I took off my pants as soon as I was back on the shore. Then I heard some giggles and as I looked around there were some girls just laughing and pointing over at me. So I picked up my pants and jumped back in the lake and then I saw what had caused all the fuss. There was just a tiny little ole fish just looking up at me and it had something in its mouth. It needed my help so I pulled out this obstruction and saw what it was. Well I petted and spoke softly to the little fish and saw that we had a winning lottery ticket now in my hands. I told the little fish all about it and just turned it loose after I told it to meet me back here the next day. So I cashed in the ticket and went and bought a new pick-up truck and drove back to the lake to give the little fish it's part of the winnings. But, don't accuse me of trying to abuse or to cheat that fish. I am being honest.... The fish never did show up to collect its part of the winnings And that is a true fish story

    This one deserves a high rating because of intent to help the little fish survive. Above the call of duty. But it is a shame the fish did not show up for some kind of a reward. James
