While the kids and I were on vacation, we spent a lot of time hanging out in the water at a lake resort. We noticed quite a few fish swimming around and decided it might be fun to feed them. We crumbled up a slice of bread, waded into the water, and dropped the crumbs around us. Soon we were surrounded by a lot of hungry fish.
"Mama, are they going to eat us?" my son asked.
"No, Bubba. These are sunfish and minnows. They don't eat humans."
He looked at me skeptically, and backed off while the fish continued to swarm me. Pretty soon, I was out of bread crumbs. But the fish wanted more. They started bumping into my legs. A few spied my toes with their red-painted nails. Apparently they thought my toes looked like hot dogs with ketchup, because the darn fish started nibbling on them.
"Bubba," I said. "Maybe I ought to rethink my last comment. These fish are trying to eat my toes!"
Bubba got real serious. "Mama, you'd better get out, because if Jaws comes, you're going to be shark bait!"
