Regular Boats
One way I keep the Sunshine Jen in the sunshine is by working at the front desk for a charter company which charters (or rents) high end cruising sailboats. Folks call in, and I tell them about sailboats.

A few days ago, I had a call from a lady. The conversation went something like this:

Caller: Do you uhm like charter regular boats?

Jen: What do you mean by regular boats?

Caller: Like, uhm, you know, boats.

Jen: We charter sailboats.

Caller: No the different kind. You know, the regular ones.

Jen: There are also powerboats.

Caller: What's the difference?

Jen: They don't have sails.

Caller: Yeah.

Jen: We don't charter powerboats.

Caller: Oh. Do you know anyone who rents regular boats?

Jen: We charter sailboats which are regular boats too.

And the conversation went on into infinundanity. I won't bore you with it, gentle reader.

Then I started thinking about regular boats, and I wondered is those were boats that had enough fiber. Or maybe a boat with caffeine (I'd like a boat regular and a boat decaf).

Or maybe a regular boat is just one that floats. By the way, it's a good idea to only charter boats that float.
