carpe dead'em


On Wednesday, Sept 8, our one and only house pet seized {up} the dayRedLips, as he is affectionately called, swam on over to fishy heaven where he will now spend his days playing the carpsichord and gilling the lily. RedLips is survived in death by flora and a 1/2 used bottle of macro nutrients. He had no squiblings or squids. RedLips lived most of his three years in a fishbowl stationed in our watercloset where, unfortunately, he was frequently exposed to sharking images, brief nudity, and vain intentions. And yet, you can betta that RedLips lived a happy, non-productive three years, serving as a confidante for Daisy and herring scaly secrets of all kinds.  In lieu of flowers, codolences are being accepted in the form of checks, cash, money orders, Hot Tamales, fresh peach pie or fish sticks.

Dear Miss Fish, after reading the recent obituary of your deceased loved one, we would like to offer you the job of permanent obituary writer for the New York Times; Chicago Tribune; Los Angeles Times, and the Rexburg Standard Journal. Your writing is clear, crisp, creative, and could possibly increase our readership at a time when newspapers are struggling to keep readers. In short, Miss Fish, you will never FLOUNDER as a writer, so just for the HALIBUT, will you please send a resume to our corporate offices?

Ha! Jenni, I am (as always) impressed by your creativity and wit, and then I see from LGH's comment exactly where you got it from. You two are an excellent team. I love this ode to your beloved fishy!

Ms Fish said...

Thanks everyone. And LGH, thank you for your kind words and confidence. But holy mackerel, if I wrote obituaries, they would be so irreverent, the families would be up to their gills in fishstration. I better stick to blog posts that few people ever sea.
