Four friends had been on the same fishing trip every year for many years, camping out by a lake, but this year, just two days before their trip, Bob’s wife put her foot down and told him in no uncertain terms that he wasn’t going on the trip.
Well naturally they were all devastated as it was always a good trip with plenty of fishing, loads of beer and good banter. So disappointing.
So two days later, the three friends arrived at their campsite to find Bob there waiting for them, with a tent already set up, a stack of firewood ready for the firepit and dinner cooking.
They were surprised to see him there and asked Bob what happened and did his wife change her mind?
“Well”, Bob said, “I have actually been here since last night”.
The three of them looked even more surprised to hear this and Bob continued.
“After dinner at home yesterday evening, I was sitting in my chair when my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said, ‘Guess who?'” he said.
“And….” the three of them asked…
“Well”, Bob continued, “I pulled her hands off, turned around and she was wearing some really sexy new lingerie. She said she had been reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and she had this devilish look in her eyes! She took my hand and led me upstairs to our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over. On the bed she had handcuffs and ropes! She told me to tie her up and cuff her to the bed, so I did”.
“And then what happened….” the three of them asked and you should have seen the look on their faces.
Bob carried on, “And then she said, ‘Do whatever you want’, so here I am!”
Good story, but I wonder, if faced with that dilemna, what would you do? Would you head straight out to go camping and fishing with your friends? Would you stay the night, or for a few hours at least? Or maybe the whole duration of the trip and “punish” her for not allowing you to go? The rest of us would love to know how your version of the story ends. Please let us know by leaving a comment, the form is lower down the page…
