Brett started up the powerboat’s motor and headed toward the lake’s center. He shut down the motor, dropped the anchor, and eagerly stripped out of his clothes. But before jumping into the water, he admitted, “I don’t know how to swim.”
“Go ahead and jump in,” Christine said. “I’ll toss you the life preserver.”
As Brett thrashed about and was about to go down for the third time, Christine shouted, “Hell hath no fury, Brett.”
