329: The Tie That Binds

Blessed be the tie that binds
All Melons with a rind
The things that grow
And things that sink
In quagmire sublime

Old Hymn

“I clearly have lost control of my life,” said Wilson as he put a $30,000 gold watch on the counter. The man behind the counter smiled as he picked it up.

With the money from the pawn shop Wilson bought a one way ticket to China.

Halfway across the ocean the boat sank.

The man at the pawn shop got to keep the watch.

  1. The pawn shop man was lucky it wasn’t valueless – like a banana or something. (Note: I can’t get onto my own blog at present – it seems to be blocked. I can see everyone else’s. Hope I haven’t said or done anything naughty. Anyway – I can’t comment on comments made until it gets fixed.)

  2. Hey, Wilson here.
    I’ve been living on this island ever since I swam ashore after my boat sank on its slow journey to China. I think it’s called Long Island. Is there anyone out there? Can someone tell me the time please?
