WHEN I LET ONE LOOSE IN THE ELEVATOR

When I let one loose in the elevator, I’d been goosed by gas, released the stench of embarrassment. Out flew a largemouth bass — now for the harassment. When I let one loose in the elevator, nearby, I heard Joan’s guffaw cry, “O sakes alive!” She had a blast. A so-called friend, she turned me in, refused to lie, so I rear-ended her, let another one past. 7/31/2021 When I Let One Loose In The Elevator Sponsor: Charles Messina

So true! My granddaughter had a scary then embarrassing moment. First she was out in the heat, said she couldn’t see, nearly fainted, she was given water. We get onto the ferry and her mom starts going…ooh something stinks…grand was close to tears. Later on she tells mom…”it was me.” They can laugh about it after the fact…the bittersweet or sour…

Kim, This is so hilarious, trapped without a ventilator. Usually only see largemouth bass jumping after a morning rain, almost never in the elevator. -Richard
