Today at the Pond

I glumly sat on the rock by the pond. My fishing pole lay at my side.

A fish poked its head out of the water and said, “Hey, how come you’re not fishing today?”

I said, “What’s the point. I’ve been coming out here everyday for a year to fish, but I’ve never caught you.”

The fish said, “So, that’s it? You’re giving up?”

I leapt off the rock into the pond. I tried to catch the fish with my hands, but it swam ahead of my attempts. I finally gave up and sat down in the pond.

The fish poked out of the water again. I pet it’s fishy head.
