David, when you woke up, you were fully clothed and dry?

Next time why not embroider the dream and rescue a comely young maiden from the pounding seas?

For younger readers - 'comely' means hot.

Eh ... Uncle Mort?

With our David in mind - and with any rescuing to be done - we ought bear in mind that the word 'comely' arrives to us from Old High German which translated etymologically renders, "with difficulty."

(Now David should you protest via your OED, the word derives from chumo. )

Egads Duffers, why'n the heck did you pick today of all days to go to the beach?!!!

JK if you want something done well use the Navy - not that I would be in any way biased mind you.
