The first thing Jake was asked after his girlfriend drowned was how he felt.
"Well," he always said with a sigh, "I think this will put a real damper on our relationship."
One - I'm entirely confused, but I THINK this time I'm correctly submitting this as a RECord (am I even capitalizing that right? I'm so new at this, you guys) instead of making it part of a conversation. Whatever, the first time is always awkward.
Two - while I'm abusing parentheticals, I feel I should apologize for the awfulness of this pun. On the other hand, the most popular Tiny Stories seem to involve some sort of punnery, so maybe I shouldn't feel too bad after all.)
