Someone is getting some but it isn't me
I guess it is that time of year that the fish are getting lucky in these parts. Yes, I am talking about carp, those ugly fish that live in the man made lakes around here. At least someone is getting lucky I guess!
Toots and I like to walk around a local lake and then head to the play park attached to it and some how she talked me into heading there on Sunday after I had just gotten my arse kicked in soccer. She was a trooper at my game, so I figured I owed her.
Within the first minute of our walk, we both heard a lot of splashing, so we decided to take a closer look. When I say splashing, I mean like being in a pool with ten thousand toddlers. There were (I think) 2 fish going to town on each other. They were frantically splashing about all over the place. It was a bit disturbing like I was watching fishy porn! Toots was in awe. I couldn’t pull her away from the activity (fighting is what I told her they were doing since she is only 3).
Literally, 1 hour later I had to bribe her with a fish of her own to get her to walk away from the show. So now we are the proud owners of a 2 gallon tank and two goldfish. I guess it is better than having to buy her a video called “Fishy does Family Park”
