These days I am searching high and low for things to lift me up. And this particular story - it makes me laugh every single time. This was from my sister's neighbor, and it had me laughing so hard I had TEARS rolling down my face. (You guys will appreciate it, as well, I’m sure…)
My sister’s neighbor, Lori, came over and had a drink with us when I was up for a visit. She was telling us about a woman she works with named Sue.
It seems that Sue had a blind date last summer, and was to meet the gentleman at a local bar. Well, the fella never showed up, and she ended up meeting another man named Joe. She and Joe cozied right up, and ended up on his boat that was anchored out on the Mystic River. (That’s where he was living at the time.) At about 3:00 in the morning she told him she needed to use his bathroom. He told her his bathroom wasn’t working, and she would have to go topside, and pee off the boat.
She went up, squatted down and stuck her, um, rear end off the boat to pee. Then, she fell rear-end first off the boat, RIGHT into the water!! She was yelling and flailing, and yelling some more, and trying to find a way back on the boat. (Remember, it’s after 3:00 in the morning.)
She FINALLY found a rope, and pulled herself onto the rather large boat. She went down the steps, where he had poured them both some wine and made some snacks. She stood in front of him SOAKING wet.
“Where have you been?” he asked.
“Where have I been? WHERE HAVE I BEEN? I was at the bottom of the Mystic River, you ass. Didn’t you hear me?”
And with that, she chugged the wine, and went to dry off.
They’re still together.
