About women readers…
Here’s a little levity to start your Wednesday morning.
Although not as familiar with the lake as her husband, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, drops anchor, puts her feet up, and opens her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.
Before long, she hears another motor. She looks up to see the Game and Fish Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, “Good morning, ma’am. What are you doing?”
“Reading a book,” she replies, thinking, Isn’t that obvious?
“Well, you’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” the warden informs her.
“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”
“Yes, but I see you have all the proper equipment. For all I know, you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“If you do that,” the woman replies, “I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault.”
“But I haven’t laid a finger on you,” says the warden.
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know, you could start at any moment.”
“Have a nice day, ma’am,” he says and leaves.
MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think.
