I thought you might get a kick out of the story, Helen......as soon as
I saw the Staten Island Ferry punch line. :-)
>> THE BOAT RIDE
>>A depressed young woman was so desperate, that she decided
>>to take her own life by throwing herself into the ocean. When
>>she went down to the docks, a handsome young sailor saw her tears,
>> took pity on her, and said,"Look you have a lot to live for.
>>I'm off to Europe in the morning,and if you like, I can stow you
>>away on my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you
>>food every day."
>>Moving closer he puts his arm around her and added, "I'll keep
>>you happy and you'll keep me happy."
>>The girl nodded yes and thought what did she have to lose?
>>That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a
>>lifeboat. From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches
>>and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love all night.
>>Three weeks later, during a routine search, she was discovered
>>by the captain.
>>What are you doing here?" the captain asked.
>>"I have an arrangement"with one of the sailors, he's taking
>>me to Europe
>>"Europe madam," said the captain "This is the Staten Island Ferry, "
>>NOTE: (The Staten Island Ferry is a 20 minute boat ride between Manhattan
>>and Staten Island which goes back and forth every hour)
