    The Girl on the Beach

    A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach almost every day. She wasn't unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing: she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around and then speak to them.

    Generally, the people would respond negatively and she would wander off. But occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money and something that she carried in her bag.
    The couple assumed that she was selling drugs and debated calling the cops, but since they didn't know for sure, they decided to just continue watching her.

    After a couple of weeks the wife said, 'Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic devices?' He hadn't and said so.

    Then she said, 'Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she's really doing.'

    Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave. The man then walked up the beach and met his wife at the road.

    'Well, is she selling drugs?' she asked,excitedly.

    'No, she's not,' he said, enjoying this probably more
    than he should have.

    'Well, what is it then? What does she do?' his wife fairly shrieked.

    The man grinned and said, 'She's a battery salesperson.'

    'Batteries?' cried the wife.

    'Yes!' he replied.

    Very funny! (Not too sure how many people use "C" batteries these days, but those of us that do, that is hilarious!)

    I remember those C batteries. Mostly use triple A now. Keep up the good humor, as we all need a laugh now and then.

    Very funny. We have some "C" batteries, now nothing we own uses them. May be they are no good.

    Ok, that was funny. My father would have loved it. His favorite kind of joke. Thanks for the laugh and the memory.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I have some flashlights that use "C" and "D" batteries....I guess that would be aging the flashlights!

    Thanks for the laugh...again
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Ditter, you did it again. You can almost always put a grin on my chin, and today was the best. My DSIL was standing over my shoulder and read this one. Thought he was going to wet his pants he laughed so hard. Thank you for the chuckles
