“Fraidy” Old Lady
A “fraidy” old lady at the Pompano shore
was afraid to wade, but not anymore!
Her ankles tickled when the little fish nibbled.
Their bite was so light, the old lady giggled,
“Why didn’t I try this before?”

This limerick tells a true tale about an old lady…me. The fish bit hard enough that it almost hurt, but not quite! My sister treated me to a fish pedicure when I visited her. It was a very similar experience!
