a little humor for Tues. morning.
A woman was feeling so depressed that she decided to end her life by
throwing herself into Lake Erie. She went down to the docks and was
about to leap into the frigid water when a handsome young sailor saw her
teetering on the edge of the pier, crying.
He took pity on her and said, "Listen, you've got a lot to live for.
I'm off to Europe in the morning and if you like, I can stow you away on
my ship. I'll take good care of you, and bring you food every day." Moving
closer, he slipped his arm around her shoulder and added with a wink, "and
make you happy, and you can make ME happy."
The girl nodded yes through her tears. After all, what did she have to
lose? That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat,
along with blankets and food. From then on, every night he brought her
sandwiches, water, wine and fruit and they would make mad, passionate
love until dawn.
Three weeks later, during a routine inspection, she was discovered by
the Captain... "What the are you doing here?" the Captain demanded
angrily."I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she explained.
"I get free food and a trip to Europe. Meanwhile, he's been taking advantage
me." (as she winks)
"He sure is, lady," the Captain said. "This is the Put-In-Bay Ferry”
"I drank to drown my pain, but the damned pain learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good behavior."
