You Know, That Jerk

You’re laying in bed drifting off to sleep. Then, either by a random muscle twitch or by a moment in a dream, your body jerks you back awake with a start. It happens to all of us… you know, that jerk.

It recently happened to my buddy Jarod after a long day of bass fishing on his pristine Ozark pond…

As I was falling asleep on Saturday night I started seeing myself fishing. I got a bite and then my arms jerked to set the hook. That violent jerk work me up. As I laid there drifting back off to sleep I realized that we’d either fished way too much or not quite enough.

Ironically, wonderfully, we’d probably done both.
