Chemical Adjustment

I couldn’t find a place to relax in Seattle. So I rented a boat and rowed out to the middle of Puget Sound.

I started to feel better. Then an otter poked its head out of the water and said, “So, this your first time to Seattle?”

I was startled and irritated and tried to be kind. I said, “No, I was here last year.”

I think the otter got it that I was feeling rough. He went back down under the water.

The otter came up a minute later with a fish in its mouth, threw it on the boat and said, “A gift for you.”

The thing is, I was kind of hungry. I got it that I couldn’t relax because of low blood sugar. I ate the fish and felt much better.
