She then wrote a note saying, "I've kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning,

sure enough =

JUST MY LUCK !!
Standing at the
edge of a lake, a man noticed a woman screaming for help in some distance.
Unable to swim, the man looked around him and saw fisherman running up. The
man said, "My wife is drowning and I can't swim. Please save her. I'll
give you a hundred dollars."
The fisherman dove into the water. In ten powerful strokes, he reached the
woman, put his arm around her, and swam back to shore. Depositing her at
the feet of the man, the fisherman said, "Okay, where's my hundred?"
