“What is that pink monstrosity you have back there?”, asked Fred.
“Truth is, no one knows. We’ve had the biologists from down at the university over. They think it may be some new species. It showed up one morning, cooing at my fishing boat moored at the dock and hasn’t left since.”, replied Bill.
“Huh,” exclaimed Fred. “Must have been lonely.”
“Yeah, I think the poor thing’s done fallen for my boat.” said Bill. “Now there’s an unrequited love if I ever saw one. It’s been great for fishing though. I hop in the boat, troll along the shore and ole ‘Pinky’ there keeps tossing ’em in…trophy fish for sure. Must be trying to woo the boat is all I can figure.”
