fair warning

“You remember radiotelephones? very expensive.”

One captain tells of being on a boat with his crew in Cape May when the following dialogue was overheard on a channel that a radiotelephone was using. The call was from a commercial fishing boat that often stays out for weeks at a time, from a man on the boat to a woman onshore.

Husband: “Hon, there’s fish. I think we’re going to be a few more days out here.”

Wife: “Well…I’m having sex on friday. If you want to be there for it. Your call.”

thank you, Capt. JJ!
