Let me tell you about Peter.
Tonight we were at Panda Palace for dinner and we were seated right next to the lovely fish tank, which shinraifaith was excited about. After ordering she leaned over and said quietly ‘one of them is dead’. We all looked over calmly to see…a fish floating belly up. We quickly looked away, but sneaking glances began to feel increasingly uncomfortable by the poor things presence just…floating. Still. In the corner.
We got pretty sad about it and tried not to look, wondering if we should say something to the waiter. We heard a customer leaving who quietly told the owner’s son about it only to hear him laugh and say ‘Oh, you know Peter. He’s just resting.’
We sat awkwardly in our seats, not believing that this guy just made a joke about this poor dead fish. A couple of kids came up to look at the tank and we all held our breath HOPING they weren’t gonna see it.
Then, Peter suddenly flipped over and swam away. We all just stared with our mouths open.
After a second he swam back over, gave a little wriggle, turned upside down, and just….floated.
This little bastard DUPED US. I have never been fooled so badly by a freaking FISH.I couldn’t breathe for like 5 minutes I was DYING.
Unlike Peter who was just resting.
