金鱼

金鱼,jīn yú & lán sè,
goldfish & blue

金鱼,jīnyú, “Goldfish” stores,

upon entering feelings of nostalgia will flood and envelop you,

days of getting your very first goldfish, which you promise to cherish, love and feed forever until that dreaded day when you must bid farewell to UmmmWhaa THE goldfish, while flushing his little goldfish corpse down the toilet,

that, or, as in my sister’s case,

placing him carefully in a match stick box filled with the best toilet paper and building a cross with 2 matchsticks ‘n parading him around the backgarden in a funeral procession…

these are precious times…

You and the time with your first 金鱼goldfish,

or (you and the time with your first catfish or shark)

Pets… I hope so!!!
