The Girl at the beach
A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the
Beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at
The beach almost every day. She wasn't unusual, nor
Was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing;
She would approach people who were sitting on the
Beach, glance around furtively, then speak to them.
Generally, the people would respond negatively and she
Would wander off. But occasionally someone would nod
And there would be a quick exchange of money and
Something she carried in her bag.
The couple assumed that she was selling drugs and
Debated calling the cops, but since they didn't know
For sure, they just continued to watch her.
After a couple of weeks the wife said, 'Honey, have
You ever noticed that she only goes up to people with
Boom boxes and other electronic devices?'
He hadn't -- and said so.
Then she said, 'Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and
Our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can
Find out what she's really doing.'
Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife
Was almost hopping up & down with anticipation when
She saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave.
The man then walked up the beach and met his wife at
'Well, Is she selling drugs?' she asked excitedly.
'No, she's not,' he said, enjoying this probably more
Than he should have.
'Well, what is it then? What does she do ?' his wife
The man grinned and said, 'She's a battery
'Batteries?' cried the wife.
'Yes ...' he replied -
'She sells C cells by the seashore'
