Buy A Rowboat Day

Buy A Rowboat Day!

Show it to your wife and tell her that it's the first step towards buying that lake house she's always dreamed of. Tell her today you're going to start saving.

She'll say, "Just let me go back inside and pack and I'll be out of your hair."

Point to the rowboat and say, "But the rowboat."

"Mmm," she'll say. Then she'll go back into the house to pack her two suitcases full of everything she can fit. Follow her into the bedroom.

"It's taking longer than I thought," she'll say. "I'm just trying to think of everything I might need so I won't have to come back here for as long as possible. Maybe never."

Try once more. "The rowboat?"

"I'm not into it," she'll say. "Too many mistakes. Sorry. Nice boat though."

About an hour and a half later she'll be gone. You'll have a new rowboat though. Bring it into the living room and sit in it while you watch TV.

Happy Buy A Rowboat Day!
