Orange fishies
penrose orange
stephenw32768
I had a dental checkup today. My teeth are fine. Another cavity-free year.

There's an aquarium in the dentist's waiting room. I passed the time while waiting for my appointment by looking at the fishies. There were lots of them, in different sizes. Most of them were a glorious, deep goldfishy orange. There were tiny ones, less than an inch long; big ones, about the size of the palm of my hand; and lots in between. The big ones barely moved; there were two of them, pale creamy orange, just bobbing around in the corner of the tank. The smaller ones were darting all over the place. I think my favourites were a couple of narrow, streamlined ones, deep orange in colour, with black stripe at the bases of their long tails.

When I was a child, I won a goldfish at a fair. We gave it to my friend who had a fishpond.
