Daily Prompt: Uncanned Laughter – Smitty Boats

Daily Prompt: Uncanned Laughter

A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.


His name was Smith but mostly everyone called him Boats.

He wore his watch on his left arm with the face on the inside of his wrist.


The ability to carry six or eight cups of coffee, like a beer server at Oktoberfest, was a skill we all had, but he was better than most. Laden in this manner Boats could also operate a doorknob.

With three cups of coffee in his left hand and three in his right Smitty was heading for Upper Level when Dwayne hollered across the Mess Deck, “Hey, Boats. What time is it?”


And, with nary a doorknob involved, he looked at his watch.

To the raucous sound of laughter, the contents of the left hand cups splashed playfully on the deckplates.

  1. Very funny. But surely if he was that adept he’d have managed to bend over and look up? Good foreshadowing – I wondered why the position of the watch face was going to be so important.
