this is not a post related to art, i know,
but it is a funny story i’d like to share.
last night i went fishing with my boyfriend and one of my friends.
i was recently given a fishing pole,
i won’t say by who,
and wanted to try it out for the first time.
as i made my first cast of the night
the pole snapped in half in mid air.
i was disappointed, but decided to hold onto my line which was still out in the water.
i didn’t think i would catch anything,
let along feel anything,
since i was just holding the line with my hands.
lo and behold,
a minute later i felt a fish,
quickly jerked the line, and reeled in a 10in. trout!
this was only my 3rd time ever fishing!
the rest of the evening i fished with a broken pole,
only a sinker and a hook,
and some poorly and improperly tied knots.
after two hours i ended up with two fish.
boyfriend caught one.
friend caught zero.
i’m considering a career in fishing now.
