Is it a full moon?

I usually don’t cross-post pieces from my personal blog on Wizbang, but this one is pretty darn funny so I thought it would provide a good laugh for everyone on a Monday morning.


As owners of a canoe livery, we get our share of interesting phone calls, one of which happened to my husband just today.

A woman who lives a couple hours away and who had a reservation today for some canoes and tubes called this morning asking about the possibility of a rain check. My husband couldn’t help but be somewhat confused because it was partly sunny and warm. Yes, there were some clouds but nothing threatening.

He politely told her that he didn’t see the need for a rain check as it wasn’t raining.

“Does it have to be raining where you are?” she asked him, “because it’s raining really hard here.”

It took Steve a couple of seconds to respond to her because he was kind of surprised by the question. In fact, he literally had to bite his tongue before he answered because he didn’t want to offend her by laughing.

In his best serious but casual tone of voice he said, “I’m sorry but we don’t give rain checks if it’s raining at a different location.”

So I have to ask, is there a full moon today?
