“When the Maiden of the Sea is granted alms, she shall never return them. ” – Ancient mariner saying I just made up. OK, so it’s not an ancient mariner saying. But it should have been, or, at least should be from this point on because I think it sounds a little better than saying, “I went crabbing with my kids, and our chair was blown into the water, and I didn’t get it back, despite spending 20 or so... It happened on a beautiful summer day, when my kids and I decided to take to the sea to catch our dinner. The plan was hatched a few days earlier, when we were out at a pier enjoying the sunset and watching the fishermen. My son enjoys chatting with the fishermen and seeing what they have brought in. Parker began talking with an older gentleman who had three large buckets and a large cooler, all filled with blue crabs. “How did you catch so many. ” he asked. The man held up one of those wire and string crab traps you can get for a couple of bucks at a discount store. “Little man,” he said to my son in a fantastic island/Bond villain accent. “Little man – don’t buy de big traps.

My wife said it would be a good idea to have them, so I once again lost an argument on a 1-1 tie. My daughter had settled in by a crab trap and was reading a book. Not a bad way to lounge. She then made the mistake of standing up right as a huge wind gust swept in, lifting the beach chair up and into the water. Fun fact: Some beach chairs don’t float. My wife’s favorite chair is one of those. The water was about six feet below us. There was a second ledge about three feet from the water. My son jumped down to the ledge and tried to catch the chair before it went under, but it went Leonardo DiCaprio on him and sunk out of sight. “Should I jump in. ” he. Source: www.aikenstandard.com
