In which - Happy Go Fishing Day!
"As long as you do it responsibly, and don't take more than you need," Aura said. "I think your fella was talking about it in that interview you showed me."
(My fella? I kind of wish. She means John Ashton, who does indeed like fishing.)
"I've never tried it," I admitted.
"I did. At a rainbow trout farm in Tennessee when I was a kid. Somewhere there's probably a photo of me with a hat like yours and a fishing pole," Maddy said. "And no, I never caught a thing. All these poor fish in a cement pond probably not being fed so idiots like us could come by, rent a pole and pretend we were actually out there being sporting and all and nope - not a nibble." She shook her head. "I've got a bad feeling it was the aquatic version of that awful buffalo farm in Bless The Beasts and the Children."
"Besides, fish paralyzed by helpless fits of laughter are somewhat easier to catch," Aura added.
(It's all kind of moot since none of us have a fishing license, but oh well.)
