STORYTIME

i picked a tree, tied my boat to it, and be­gan fish­ing for crap­pies. soon af­ter, a flock of cor­morants be­gan to gather in the tree. they made a huge racket. the noise was in­cred­i­ble.

then the birds fell strangely silent. the next thing i knew, a del­uge of drop­pings started fall­ing on me!

poop cov­ered every­thing. all the other an­glers were spared, and they couldn’t help laugh­ing.

i was fish­ing a lake in texas and mo­tored to a hot spot in the trees be­low the spill­way.

i aban­donded fish­ing and headed home to clean up-to the amuse­ment of my fam­ily.
