I Can’t Bear To Look (318/365)

“You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories.”

Stanislaw Jerzy Lec (Polish, Poet, 1909-1966)

TIME:  3:58 PM
PLACE:  My desk

It may look like Jack is sleeping, but actually he is averting his eyes from the horror that has infected our aquarium.  The newest koi fish, Poseidon, has eaten one of our Plecostomus (algae fish).  How do I know?  Well, the fact that the algae fish’s tail is hanging out of the mouth of Poseidon gave me my first clue.Poor little Plecostomus…we’ll always remember you.  Who knew goldfish were such killers.  Not the algae fish, that’s for sure.    Tonight I believe that I will be sleeping with one eye open…in case Poseidon tries to eat me too.
