3WW: Capture, Jinx, Qualify

I don’t want to jinx
the capture of his tuna.
I qualify words.
MY HUSBAND HAS A TUNA ON HIS LINE
Must qualify words
so he’ll capture his tuna
without being jinxed.



Update: 9 PM

He got it! It took 7 1/2 hours but he finally got the tuna on the boat. He thinks it weighs between 600-800 lbs. That's a big one! I'm off to meet him at the dock to take some pictures.

















Talking about it didn't jinx him. Phew!

That's really cute. "Qualify your words" as in, "Is it important enough for me to talk to interrupt his fishing?" :)
