Little Treasures

Fishing brought happiness to Chuck as he sat amongst the trees with much effort and few results. It didn’t matter that no fish were on the line. He whistled all the while.

Sally loved her man, but his obsession with fishing drove her beyond mad. Maybe if he caught a fish once in a while, that would be different. She did like to eat fish, but the paraphernalia did not belong in her home. Once, she stepped on a hook that was hidden in the carpet. The dog winced at her profanity and luckily for Chuck, he was not home.

T-shirts, hats, random bumper stickers all about the man’s hobby were scattered everywhere. Chuck often looked like an add for some podunk hick town despite the fact he was a stock broker. One by one, the items began to disappear. Gone was the Big Mouth Billy Bass singing wall plaque, the Keepin’ it Reel baseball cap, the Meat without Feet sweatshirt, the Kiss my Bass coffee mug.

Chuck missed some of these items and wondered where they had been misplaced, but the bulk were forgotten as he had not remembered buying them in the first place. He still had his fish shaped car air freshener to keep him company while heading to his favorite spot.

On a crisp October morning, Chuck sat in his lambswool turtleneck and suspenders eying the water. Lot’s of mosquitoes today. He felt good about his chances. The line hit something with some resistance and he knew, he knew! Frantically he tugged to keep his prize on the line. Everything was going perfectly. He let the big guy tire out before reeling him in.

He was exhausted by the end of it and… surprised by a rather large plastic garbage sack that came flying at him. It was no fish at all. He carefully opened the bag in fear of what he might find. In it, one Big Mouth Billy Bass, one Keepin’ it Reel baseball cap, one Meat without Feet sweatshirt and some random smatterings of various bumper stickers and coffee mugs.

    It’s a new genre, a story with catch and and a twist! ;) Love the little details running through this, which made it an extremely authentic and entertaining read.

    Nice read! Love how Chuck noticed some items were missing but didn’t remember buying them! LOL And the singing fish should be chopped into small pieces and tossed into several garbage cans so as to limit the possibilities of them being reunited and torturing us with ‘song’ ever again! LOL
