Swimming Upside Down

I walked past the kids’ goldfish bowl a couple weeks ago and saw our pet fish, Goldie, floating belly up. As we all know, floating belly up is “I’m dead” in the international language of fish. But the odd thing was, Goldie appeared alive. I tapped the glass and she flipped over to swim away.

We lost a chicken. She was a silly bird. Flighty. We’re not sure if it’s the result of something she ate or fowl play. The other hens wouldn’t squawk about what happened in the coop that dark night.
