Fish

May 31, 2012

I think it’s a combination of ideas in One Fish, Two Fish and McElligot’s Pool (both of which are Dr. Seuss books), the idea of casting your line out there and actually bringing home some odd creature.  My high school Latin teacher was telling me about how his wife had caught a really big fish, bigger than she is, when they were out fishing somewhere to the south.  She let hers go.  What if it looks at you with great big eyes and asks to be taken home and put up in the back spare bedroom?  What if it won’t take no for an answer?  It’s probably, then, a baby whatever-it-is, not The Devil.
