Is life better with a boat?

time for the boat show
should be "friend with a boat" show
cause who needs a boat?

There’s a commercial running right now that ends with the tag line, "Because life in Austin is better with a boat." Here’s what I think it should really say:

"Because life in Austin is better when you have a friend with a boat."

"Or wait, life in Austin is better when you have a friend with a boat and a bowl of guacamole and some beers and a way to get you a day off."

"Hang on, life in Austin is better when you have a boat that will take your kids out on the lake and use its artificially intelligent brain to feed them, entertain them, and change some diapers while you sleep in the sun."

"No really, life in Austin is better with a boat – a boat that can do your taxes."

"On second thought, life in Austin is better with a boat-load of money so you can buy one of those cute little houses downtown that make it look like you don’t really have a lot of money and are a "salt of the earth" type person."

"I know! Life in Austin is better when you have a boat that can figure out how to get you to the breakfast taco place without having to sit in traffic."

"Life in Austin is better with a boat, especially if that boat can breastfeed your baby at 3 am and then clean your kitchen."

  1. I LOVE this. Dirk and I used to always say that our goal in life was to have friends with a boat. It was never, I repeat, NEVER to actually own a boat.
    So note to reader with a boat: We will pay for your gas, bring the beer, load everything onto the boat, clean up after, whatever you want. Can we be your friend?
    That’s not shallow, is it?

  2. Kari,
    You are a ray of sunshine. My life was missing something before I started reading your blog. You complete me. (Not really, but I enjoy the HELL out of your humor. You make me laugh out loud. Always a good thing.)
