Hungry Fish

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who participated in the Indie Book Collective Blog Tour de Force.  It was a huge success!  My post alone generated over one hundred books for our troops.  Awesome job, everyone!

Today, I'm going to tell you about my fish.  You know all about my bad dog.  And you've read a thing or two about my bird and the cat.  But you don't know about my fish.

We have a tank full of them:  guppies, swordfish, angelfish, neons, etc.  It's a colorful menagerie.  The thing about the fish, is that they can be a little impatient when it comes to their meals.  This evening, I was sitting at the computer, plinking away on the keyboard, when I heard a lot of splashing behind me (the tank is in the office).

The angelfish were going nuts.  They saw me sitting in front of them, and it was way past their dinner time. They were attempting to jump out of the water.  I could just imagine the little thoughts going on inside their heads:

"Hey, lady, get over here.  What's the matter with you?  Can't you see we're hungry?"

The mollys and swordfish joined in the commotion.  It was a total feeding frenzy -without the food.

"Okay, boys and girls.  Here's some chow."  I dumped some food in, and watched them swarm.

What a bunch of characters!
