it happens every year.
they start when i clean out my fish pond in the spring
and last until i get it ready for winter.
my freaky fish nightmares.
i start having the same ones....over and over.
i wake up sweating.
sometimes i have to go outside and make sure there all still in there.
no, i'm not on drugs. i'm just a little crazy from time to time.
maybe it's from scooping out all the toxic pond muck.
i end up covered in it.
if you ever show up when i working on it....i will make you help.
i dump it in my compost bin...for some reason, it really likes it.
i always dream that all my fish are laying outside of the pond.
and all i ever do is run around and throw them back in. over and over and over....
and just when i think i have saved them all....it's begins again.
by the way my nightmares go...i SHOULD be in really fabulous shape.
all i do is run.
everyone who sees my fish always has the same reaction.
"HOLY COW, THEM ARE SOME BIG FISH"
(....well, we are in kansas.)
i guess i've had them for so long, they seem to normal to me.
two feet long is normal, right?
i got them when they were all less than 2 inches long...11 years ago.
now, they are just crazy big.
yes, they have names....and no, i am still not on drugs.
now do you see why it freaks me out??...would you want to run and around and fling those
giant things back in the water??
all. night. long.
...and yes, it's happened. from time to time, they will flop themselves into a plant, and won't be
able to get back out...and i have to save them.
and one time, before we had all of these fish.
the pond drained itself overnight and killed all the fish. (except for 2 very lucky little ones)
yes, over fish.
they were all huddled into the last remaining spot of water...it was awful.
hopefully that never happens again.
i don't need anymore fishy nightmares.
i seem to have plenty.
