women who read

A couple goes on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota. The husband likes to fish at the crack of dawn – the wife likes to read. One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors and continues to read her book.

Along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, “Good morning Ma’am. What are you doing?”

“Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking, “Isn’t that obvious?”)
“You’re in a restricted fishing area”, he informs her.
“I’m sorry officer, but I’m not fishing, I’m reading.”
“Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”

“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you”, says the game warden.
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”

“Have a nice day ma’am”, and he left.

Moral of the stories: Never argue with a woman who reads.

One of my favorite TV show is crime series Bones on Fox TV. The main character, Dr Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan is loosely based on the life of author and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs. I just love Dr Brennan’s signature look–trench coat and chunky necklace.

Quotes from Bones:

Booth: You’re a smartass, you know that?

Brennan: Objectively, I’d say I’m very smart, though it has nothing to do with my ass.

  1. Great trenchcoat! Who on earth would get rid of that jacket!?

    Thanks for visiting my blog – send me an email sometime, I can tell you about another item that we have in common!


  2. Great way to start off my morning – cute joke. Your ensemble is stunning. Looks like you could easily solve a crime and then head out for an evening on the town. Love the trench.
