The One That Got Away

Freeing a carpCOLLECTION: Swim boy, Swim!

They’ve got these crazy big fish there [Chinese supermarket] in these tiny tanks just waiting to be butchered in there. One in particular, the biggest of the bunch, had caught my eye some time back. I don’t know why, but I make a point of visiting with him every time I go shopping.
Today though, he seemed sullen. I couldn’t even get his attention. It was like we were in similar moods…
It was obvious what had to be done.
“This one… he’s coming with me.”

An amusing photographic tale about buying a live 40 pound fish and releasing him into the polluted wild.
