Weather Appreciation 303

“Like me? Why not you?” I questioned relentlessly.
“I,” she replied haughtily, “am the Fish Keeper. It’s my job to look after you babies. Make sure you don’t climb the roof or something.

Over the course of the day, about 20 more fishies had straggled in, only to be informed of their predicament by the junior under the oak tree. Even a transfer senior was here, looking injured that he had to spend the rest of the day with little stupid fishies. The way I saw it, he wasn’t much better off, except the junior openly flirted with him. Wow. Huge improvement.
