'Keep going MOTH, I can hardly wait to hear more.'
'Well you know how I've always wanted a fish cleaning sink like my old mate Bucky built for himself at his McShack? Do you reckon these 2 beauties would be just perfect for that or what!'
'MOTH, when was the last time you went on a fishing trip?'
'Umm well Mills, that would be a couple of weeks ago.'
'And MOTH how was the weather on that trip?'
'You know perfectly well that it was RS Mills - it rained the whole bloody time.'
'So just remind me, how many fish did you exactly catch MOTH?'
'Geez Mills, that would have been none - no need to rub it in.'
'And would that have been the same weekend that you stormed home early with not a fish to be seen & the worst Man Cold you've ever had?'
'Ummm yep, that would have been the one.'
'So MOTH, before that weekend, when was the last time you had a fishing weekend away where you actually caught anything?'
'You know exactly when that was Mills. You were away in Greece for that Conference & you gave me a Leave Pass to go fishing with my mates up at Broome. Fish Mills, you should have see 'em!! We didn't even have to put a line over, they were just jumping straight into the boat of their own free will!! We took 'em back to the kitchen at the Cable Beach Resort & those chefs cleaned 'em for us & cooked 'em up for our dinner!'
'So if my memory serves me correctly that would have been in the Winter of 1994. And even then someone else gutted & cleaned your fish. '
'Nothing gets by you my little Pirhana Fish does it.'
'No MOTH it doesn't.'
'All right Mills, point taken. I'll load 'em on the truck & take 'em back, but let me tell you I'm not happy about it.'
In your dreams mate!
