Dear husband had a shopping list of materials for the boat so it was time to lighten his wallet in Port Townsend, the go-to place for bronze bolts, copper nails, and the other esoterica of boats. You know what “boat” stands for, don’t you? Break Out Another Thousand.
A couple is out for a day of boating when suddenly the boat begins to sink.
Wife: “You’re the sailor, honey. Do something nautical!”
Husband: “Like what?”
Wife: “Write a check!”
