Message in a BottleMature

Look.  If anyone gets this, I'm on the island in the middle of the duck pond.  Send help.

The water's about four feet deep, you say. 

I know.

Why can't I just wade out, then?

Because it's green.  And it smells.  And I'm not that desperate yet.

Why do I have to send this message in a empty, plastic Coke bottle, you wonder?  Why can't I just shout to someone on shore?

Well, I tried that.  It didn't work.  They all ran away from me, looking frightened.

I'm not scary.  I just want to get out of here.  It's lonely, with only ducks for company.

Please.  Send help.

Maybe if you do, I'll tell you how I got out here in the first place.

The End
