And then I Found Twenty Dollars

June 25th, 2008 by william


So, Ruth and I are still on the beach. Our kayak rentals are expiring this morning, so I got up at six to make a little more fun before returning them. Ruth was too tired to go, so I went fishing instead. The bait fish were schooling like I have never seen before, and I even saw some kind of large ray swimming along the beach. I caught one fish and then the school moved on, so I gave up and went back to the beach house. I spotted some dolphins chasing the fish, and I did the only logical thing–running wildly down the beach chasing the dolphin. This could not go on forever, so I stopped and stared into the surf. And then I found 20 dollars. For reals.

Perhaps I should donate it to some dolphin research or protection fund. Any ideas?

    The dolphin, knowing you are a physicist, probably put it there so you would get it laser beams for its family. To attach to their heads.

    Don’t do it! Don’t take their filthy dolphin blood money!!
