Year after year Bubba’s wife pleaded with him to take her fishing but he kept telling her she would not enjoy it.
She, finally, wore him down, he consented, and early one morning they took off to the lake.
They had not been there very long when the fish began biting.
Almost as fast as they cast, a fish would bite, and they reeled it in.
After catching their limit, Bubba said, “Verna Lou, sweet thang, I’m sorry.
You’ve been good luck and I’m gonna bring you with me the next time.
If you’ll mark the spot where we caught all these fish, we’ll go home.”
On the way home, Bubba turned to Verna Lou and said, “Sweet thang, how did you mark the spot were all the fish are so next time I’ll know?” “Bubba, darlin’, I put a big ‘X’ on the side of the boat right down closest to the water.”
“Sweet thang, that’s about the dumbest thing I ever seen you do.
Don’t you know that won’t work? We may not get the same boat the next time!”
