Fish Tales

“We have to rescue him!”
“Muriel, are you sure you aren’t imagining things? Last week you swore you saw the Loch Ness monsters cousin. I think you might have eaten some bad clams…”

Muriel huffed, a cloud of bubbles escaping her mouth, “Just because you don’t believe in humans doesn’t mean they don’t exist. I swear he was right here, peering down, begging to be saved.”
“You aren’t thinking straight. How would he even breath up there without water?”
“Maybe he has a bucket?”
“Sure, that must be it. I think you’ve been swimming too close to the Jellyfish again.”
