Gone Fishin'


Ethan took Benjamin fishing Saturday morning. It was a big deal. Benjamin had drawn a series of fish on his calendar for Saturday, May 26, and he crossed the days off in eager anticipation. They picked up a Pirates of the Caribbean fishing rod and tackle box, loaded their backpack with water, iced tea, two chocolate chip muffins, and three Little Debbie Star Crunches (nutrition is essential for the sportsman), and headed to the local pond. They saw baby goslings crossing the trail with their mother, a dead fish that looked like it had been partially consumed by a heron or some other bird, and a large fish swimming near Ben's line. They spent an hour and a half and caught nothing.


And when Ben got into bed that night, he said, "This has been one of the best days of my life."
