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
