Have you ever felt compelled to Name a Fish? It’s very tempting.
To acknowledge their personalities, their quirks, their strengths, their failings.
From there it’s a very short walk to designing little outfits for them and signing them up for a few courses at the Continuing Education Center. Nothing too heavy, just some 101-level VCR repair or Tropical cooking classes.
But it never lasts. The glue used to keep the little hats and bow ties on their little fish bodies doesn’t last in the water. It slips off with the currents and bubbles.
That’s why you have to use staples or small nails.
At that point it’s just too late.
