A woman wishing not to be fishing
"Woe Was We" by Susan Larson

Why I would ever wimp out to the wild wishes of the man I'm wedded to and be willing to waste a week in Wisconsin is bewildering. He and his brothers Wally and Will wanted to whip out their wooden poles waiting to wrangle up walleye in the water with wiggly worms while wallowing in the waves. It's way beyond wonder.

But I willingly went west to the wilderness where we four wives wiled away a week wallowing in a wreck of a cabin working in a wee kitchen with way too few cooking wares with which to whip up anything worth wolfing down.

With the nearest Walmart over two hours away and no TV to watch, we women went all week whining within the walls of this wooden whare, withdrawing from the whopping mosquitoes whirring about and even worse, the wafting whiffs of cow manure whirling in the wind, growing weary and wistfully wishing we were home.

But our woes would have been way worse had we not had the wisdom and the wherewithal to bring the wine.
