Pool Discussion

I went swimming in the hotel pool. It felt good to be under water. I let go of the pressures from my day. I was suddenly surprised to see a cod swimming next to me.

The cod said, “Where are you from?”

I said, “Evanston. And you?”

The cod said, “Lake Michigan. I got in this afternoon. I’m here for the conference on local fishing rights. I came to protest a possible extension of the allowable fishing area boundaries.”

Like an idiot, I confessionally blurted out, “I had tuna for lunch.”

The cod said, “No worries. This morning I ate my young.”
