Αγαπιτοί φίλοι,
διαβάστε αυτή τη μικρή ιστορία. Σίγουρα θα σας αρέσει.

A hurricane came unexpectedly. The ship went down and was lost. The man
found himself swept up on the shore of an island with no other people,
no
supplies, nothing. Only bananas and coconuts. Used to 5-star hotels,
this
guy had no idea what to do, so for the next four months he ate
bananas,drank coconut juice and longed for his old life and fixed his
gaze
on the sea, hoping to spot a rescue ship. One day, as he was lying on
the
beach, he spotted movement out of the corner of his eye. It was a
rowboat,
and in it was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen. She rowed up to
him. In disbelief, he asked her: "Where did you come from? How did you
get
here?"

"I rowed from the other side of the island," she said. "I landed here
when
my cruise ship sank."

"Amazing," he said. "I didn't know anyone else had survived. How many
are
there? You were lucky to have a rowboat wash up with you."

"It's only me," she said, "and the rowboat didn't wash up; nothing did."

He was confused. "Then how did you get the rowboat?"

"Oh, simple," replied the woman. "I made the rowboat out of materials
that
I found on the island. The oars were whittled from Gum tree branches. I
wove the bottom from palm branches and the sides and stern came from a
Eucalyptus tree."

"B-B-But that's impossible," stuttered the man. "You had no tools or
hardware. How did you manage?"

"Oh, that was no problem," replied the woman. "On the other side of the
island there is a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock exposed. I found
that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into
forgeable ductile iron. I used that for tools, and used the tools to
make
the hardware. But enough of that," she said. "Where do you live?"

Sheepishly, he confessed that he had been sleeping on the beach the
whole
time.

"Well, let's row over to my place, then," she said.

After a few minutes of rowing she docked the boat at a small wharf. As
the
man looked to the shore

he nearly fell out of the boat. Before him was a stone walk leading to
an
exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white. While the woman tied up
the
rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the man could only stare
ahead,
dumbstruck. As they walked into the house, she said casually, "It's not
much, but I call it home. Sit down, please; would you like a drink?"

"No, no thank you," he said, still dazed. "I can't take any more coconut
juice."

"It's not coconut juice," the woman replied. "I have a still. How about
a
Pina Colada?" Trying to hide his amazement, the man accepted, and they
sat
down on her couch to talk. After they had exchanged their stories, the
woman announced, "I'm going to slip into something comfortable. Would
you
like to take a shower and shave? There is a razor upstairs in the
cabinet
in the bathroom."

No longer questioning anything, the man went into the bathroom. There in
the cabinet was a razor made from a bone handle. Two shells honed to a
hollow ground edge were fastened onto it's end inside a swivel
mechanism.
"This woman is amazing," he mused. "What next?"

When he returned, she greeted him wearing nothing but vines -
strategically
positioned - and smelling faintly of gardenias. She beckoned for him to
sit
down next to her.

"Tell me," she began, suggestively, slithering closer to him, "we've
been
out here for a very long time. You've been lonely. There's something I'm
sure you really feel like doing right now, something you've been longing
for all these months. You know..." She stared into his eyes. He couldn't
believe what he was hearing.

"You mean--?" he replied, "I can check my e-mail from here?"

Ciao,

Michael Efrem
