George and Lynne are in a rowing boat. Lynne tells George that Steve went shark fishing once. George says that it sounds fun but wonders why he only went once. Lynne tells him he fell overboard.

George and Lynne have decided on an afternoon on the Thames. The weather is good and their boat has moved out of view of the general public so Lynne has taken most of her clothes off. George feels a little more introverted so has decided to keep his clothes on, despite Lynne egging him on. He doesn't think it's right to be so brazen with nudity.

George and Lynne must be going on a fishing trip themselves, otherwise Lynne's piece of information would have no frame of information. However, they seem to have left their fishing tackle in the same place Lynne left her clothes. George may have to try catching pike with his bare hands. At this time he may have to remove his t-shirt to stop it getting wet.

At the end, George turns away from Lynne and pulls a face that implies he his disgusted with Lynne's comment. It may be that he is fed up with falling headfirst into Lynne's attempt at jokes. Looking closely George looks a little worried. He has heard a rustle in the trees and is hoping that a group of perverts are not spying on his wife. Even worse it could be a policeman about to arrest Lynne for lewd behaviour. Even if it is just a bird, George will be on edge for the rest of the day.


  1. Maybe, just maybe, Lynne has tired of George and has come up with a solution to rid herself of him and cure their financial problems. She's going to have George rubbed out. At the merest mention of the word "overboard "George realises how stupid he has been to put himself in this sitation. Some months from now his badly decomposed corpse will be found at Teddington lock.

  2. George appears to be appealing directly to the reader. 'See what I have to put up with?'
