A fish on the sand

Once at the beach

I saw a fish pull itself from the surf onto the sand.

I turned to look, because you don’t see this sort of thing very often.

The fish then carefully balanced itself on it’s tail

& began to hop towards me


As he came closer

the fish grinned & said

“How am I doing?”

Looking good, I replied, & I gave a thumbs up.

The fish looked around, & then confided,

“How crazy is this, boy?”


Before I could reply

the fish suddenly flicked its tail, 

& sent a little bit of sand into my eyes.

It only took me a second to gather myself

but when I looked back up 

the fish was already racing back toward the sea.


It needn’t have bothered, though.

The fish had nothing to fear from me.

I wasn’t going to chase it.


I was just disappointed.

It wasn’t evolution I was witness to ——

Just some





despite how it may appear our founder is not strangling this dog
