Brooks’ well deserved day on the lake.

Brooks’ well deserved day on the lake.

I lay on the air mattress on the lake. I looked up at the sky. The sky was smiling at me. A breeze lightly pushed me around the lake. Birds flew near me, singing beautiful melodies made up for my pleasure. A cloud was about to block the sunlight, then noticed me and said, “Oops, sorry. I’ll just go the other way.” A mermaid occasionally flew out of the water and did a flip in mid-air, calling out my name in ecstasy.

A fish stuck its head out of the water and said, “Not bad, my friend. The world seems to think you’re the special one.”

I said, “Yes. Finally. It’s about time.”

The fish said, “I wish I had that kind of support in my life.”

I said, “Well, if you try really hard to be your best self, and accept that you deserve goodness, then you too may be lucky enough to be like me.”

Just then, the fish and game warden came by in his motor-boat and scoped up the fish. He said, “I’m sorry, Brooks, that you had to endure the impudent fish. It won’t happen again. I have a grill on board my boat, and I’m going to cook up this fish with some delicious spices and a garnish and serve it to you for lunch.

I nodded a thanks to the warden. I let my hands dangle in the water. The water made me relax. I cupped water and sprinkled it on my chest and head, cooling me down. I smelled the fish being grilled and felt the excitement of anticipation in my stomach.
