    LOUISIANA STRANDED
    >>
    >> T-boy Boudreaux finally decides to take a vacation. He books himself on
    >> a
    >> Caribbean cruise and proceeds to have the time of his life until the
    >> boat
    >> sank.
    >>
    >> He found himself swept up on the shore of an island with no other
    >> people,
    >> no
    >>
    >> supplies.. Noth ing. Only bananas and coconuts.
    >> After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most
    >>
    >> gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to him. In disbelief, he asks
    >> her,
    >>
    >> 'Where you come from? How you get here?'
    >>
    >> 'I rowed over from the other side of the island,' she says. 'I landed
    >> here
    >>
    >> when my cruise ship sank.'
    >> 'Dat's amazing,' he says. 'You was really lucky to have a rowboat wash
    >> up
    >>
    >> wit you.'
    >>
    >> 'Oh, this?' replies the woman. 'I made the rowboat out of raw material
    >> found
    >>
    >> on the island. I whittled the oars from gum tree branches; I wove the
    >> bottom
    >>
    >> from palm branches; and the sides and stern came from a Eucalyptus
    >> tree.'
    >>
    >> 'But ... but .. dat's im possible,' stutters T-boy. 'You ain't had no
    >> tools
    >>
    >> or hardware. How you manage dat?'
    >>
    >> 'Oh, no problem,' replies the woman. 'On the South side of the island,
    >> there is a very unusual strata of alluvial rock exposed. I found if I
    >> fired
    >> it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into forgeable ductile
    >> iron. I used that for tools and used the tools to make the hardware.'
    >> T-boy
    >> is stunned.
    >>
    >> 'Let's row over to my place,' she says.
    >>
    >> After a few minutes of rowing, she docks the boat at a small wharf. As
    >> T-boy looks onto shore, he nearly falls out of the boat. Before him is a
    >> stone walk leading to an exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white.
    >> While
    >>
    >> the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven h emp rope, he can
    >&g t; only
    >>
    >> stare ahead,
    >> dumbstruck.
    >>
    >> As they walk into the house, she says casually, 'It's not much, but I
    >> call
    >>
    >> it home. Sit down, please. Would you like to have a drink?'
    >>
    >> 'No, no tank you,' he says, still dazed. 'Can't take no mo of dat
    >> coconut
    >> juice.'
    >>
    >> 'It's not coconut juice,' the woman replies. 'I built a still. How about
    >> a
    >>
    >> Pina Colada?'
    >>
    >> Trying to hide his continued amazement, he accepts, and they sit down on
    >> her hand-woven couch to talk. After they have exchanged their stories,
    >> the
    >> woman announces, 'I'm going to slip into something more comfortable.
    >> Would
    >> you like to take a shower and shave? There is a razor upstairs in the
    >> cabinet in the
    >> bathroom.'
    >>
    >> No longer questioning anything, T-boy goes into the bathroom. There, in
    >> the cabinet, is a razor made from a bone handle. Two shells honed to a
    >> hollow-ground edge are fastened on to its end inside of a swivel
    >> mechanism.
    >> 'WOW! dis woman is amazing,' he muses, 'what gonna be ne xt?'
    >>
    >> When he returns, she greets him wearing 'nothing but vines'
    >> strategically
    >> positioned, and smelling faintly of gardenias. She beckons for him to sit
    >> down next to her.
    >>
    >> 'Tell me,' she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him, 'We've
    >> been
    >> out here for a really long time. I know you've been lonely. There's
    >> something I'm sure you really feel like doing right now, something you've
    >> been longing for all these months. You know...'
    >>
    >>
    >> She stares into his eyes. He can't believe what he's hearing!
    >>
    >>
    >>
    >> 'You mean ...', he swallows excitedly, 'We gonna watch the LSU game from
    >> here'?
