An update and something to whet your appetite
Trust me. I didn't push her off the pier. I was just standing there minding my own business when a bunch of kids ran past me, screaming all the while. Why someone would let their kids run free like that, I don't know. They should have been on a leash or something. Scare all the fish away they did. How's a guy s'posed to catch a meal with that ruckus?
So, I'm standing there with my fishing rod in one hand, a stubby in the other, when the mother comes running toward me shouting for the kids to shut up.
She made more noise than the kids! I wanted to say something to her - on behalf of the other fishermen too scared to face up to her - but I didn't. I just leant back to cast out a new line and bam! She ran straight into me and fell over the railing. I didn't even know she was there.
Do you believe the narrator?
