There’s absolutely no doubt that I am Human’s one and only favorite. So, the other day when I said that I would really really love to eat one of the goldfish – preferably all of them …
Human said, “Let’s get everything ready. Would you like to help me with it?”
And I was like, “Yes, I would! Yes, I would!”
I was also wondering how Human’s going to prepare the goldfish. Cook them? Boild them? Fry them? Steam them?
Bak them like pies and cookies?
Not that I was picky or anything. I was just so excited! And of course, I was getting more and more excited when Human started to drain the fish tank’s water.
But then, Human put the goldfish into a smaller fish tank one by one. Afterward Human actually put the lid on it as if I was not even allowed to smell them.
Not as if …
I was not at all allowed to smell them, let alone eat them. In fact, Human was not prepering the goldfish for my dinner. Human was simply cleaning their fish tank!
I asked Human, “Why do we have to clean the goldfish if I could just eat them?” and Human answered,”Because we should always take good care of our family. And we certainly do not eat them”
Good point but still, I was
a little bit very disappointed. I thought it would have been OK to eat our family members if they’re small enough to fit in my mouth! 🙂
Well, perhaps next time!
