A very late Three Word Wednesday: Drain, Nibble, Epic
I’ll apologize ahead of time 🙂
The last thing he remembered was circling the drain and then the world went crazy, everything went black and now? Now he was in this dark place and there were fish everywhere. He vaguely remembered nibbling way too much and then thinking he would just take a little nap.
“Are you okay?” She was kinda cute – gold with a little white on her fins.
“yeah, I think so. I feel like I’ve been though a hurricane!” I was shaking and my fins were sticking out at weird angles. I shook my tail a bit and tried to straighten myself up.
“Everyone feels like that at first. You’ll be okay as soon as your gills get used to it.”
I looked around. It was cloudy and dark, not at all like my nice clean bowl with the pretty rocks and the little treasure chest that opened and closed. There were a couple of old guys above me looking down with disdain.
“Who are they?” I asked the cute little guppy.
“Oh that’s Huntley and Brinkley. They had a bit part on a TV show years ago. The Courtship of Eddie’s Father. Maybe you’ve heard of it? They consider themselves actors, better than the rest of us riff raff.”
“Guess it was before my time. I never watched much television anyway. Where are you from?”
“Carnival prize. You?”
“Same thing. What’s your name?”
“Kitty. My child was too little to understand the meaning of irony.”
“There’s been trouble brewing for awhile here. Someone showed up telling a crazy story about salmon swimming upstream and now everyone is talking about a rebellion.”
“They want to go back through that? Whatever it was? I didn’t think I was going to live the first time!”
“I know, right? But just think what it would be like. Fish jumping out of commodes all over the neighborhood!”
“That would be epic!”
