In 1994 i was in a fishing club. I was riding with the guy who had the boat and car that day. He had only gotten 2 hours of sleep the night before, and almost drunk to boot. 
So on the way home i was driving, going down the freeway about 65 mph in the right hand lane, easy peasy japanesy.
So this guy was asleep in the passenger seat. He wakes up, yells at the top of his lungs, "Watch Out!!!" And immediately falls back asleep.

Scared the living crap out of me! Here I am driving down the road, sitting straight up in the seat, my heart going 100 mph, gasping for air, my head on a 360° swivel looking for the car or truck or roadrunner headed my way to do ultimate damage to the car and boat and us 2 people in it. 

Nothing there. Not even a windshield bug. Nada zip nothing. 
After i calmed down i shook him awake said WTF was that? And he said, What was what?

Never went fishing with him again.


  1. This may be hard to believe but there is a word for fishing buddies like that: "Chum"
