Daily Prompt: Being Clean!

Daily Prompt: What’s the household task you most dislike doing? Why do you think that is — is it the task itself, or something more?

This one has to be cleaning the fish tank. I don’t exactly hate it but it’s the task that I most dislike. Our goldfish, (Comet and Asteroid), are a little bit too big for the net I fish them out with, so they enjoy flapping around and absolutely soaking me when I try to manoeuvre them into another bowl – although I don’t really blame them! And once that is done, it’s the process of heaving the fish tank from the living room and into the kitchen, then pouring the water down the sink and watching it slosh over the sides and onto my socks. The bit in between is actually fine. Then it’s right back to carrying the tank into the living room again and dripping the water onto the carpet.

The worst feeling ever? When water dribbles up your sleeves.


Daily Prompt: Being a Goldfish!

Daily Prompt: Write a post entirely in the present tense.

People think I have a memory of three seconds.

They are wrong.

It is actually three months.

I can even tell the time.

I swim around in my bubble world and watch the world go by.




I love being a goldfish.
