We threw the fish right back in the water and it swam away like a bat out of hell.
(What does that even MEAN anyway? Why bats? I mean, BATS, of all creatures in existence, should not be getting back out of hell after they die. They should be locked up in the hottest room for all eternity and made to wear little winter coats and scarves... no?)
Well, anyway, it swam away like a fish off the hook.
It's official: my California-born child is now an Okie through and through.
It baffles me.
