Indigestible The winter months of waiting were over. The package of fishing equipment had arrived at my friend’s house. It took many months, but as promised on the back of an “Incredible Hulk” comic book was the advertisement promising: 1001 Fishing Pack! Everything you needed to reel the big one in. Three rods, three reels, fishing line, hundreds of hooks, sinkers, lures, jig bodies and even jars of bait- minnows floating with frozen eyes in liquid. All for $9.99. Could there really be 1001 fishing items for that price? I didn’t believe the claims, after all along side of it was an ad for sea monkeys, dried in a package ready to be brought back to life! I was eager to see my friends face (let’s call him Ed). I was sure it was mostly junk and useless to true fishermen like us.

“I’d rather be dirty and warm than clean and freezing.” Phineas said. “Ferb, can you grab the shampoo?”
Ferb reached out for the shampoo bottle and quickly drew his arm back under the water. “You get it.”
“No. My arm will turn to ice. Perry, can you get us the shampoo?”
“I’m not getting wet.” Perry said. “It’ll only take you half a second to reach out and grab it yourself.”
“You don’t understan
