Goldfish Letters

Starvation

 

Dear Fellow Goldfish 5,

I’ve been pondering the meaning of life more often than I usually do, strange.

Sincerely Yours,

Fellow Goldfish 7

 

Dear Fellow Goldfish 7,

Weird, I have been pondering a lot about food lately. Do you think there is a connection?

Yours,

5

Dear 5,

There probably would be one if I were starving just like you, however, I am not starving so there is no connection unless I draw the idea that by watching y’all starve to death, I am thinking more about life in relation to death, Which I am.  I guess in a way we are connected.

Sincerely yours,

7

Dear 7,

Whatever.

Yours

5

Dear 5,

You need more sense of wonder in your life. I do wonder where we are. I do wonder why there are colorful rocks around us. I do wonder why or how new fishes seem to come out of no-where.

Yours,

7

Dear 7,

The only thing I wonder is when we are going to eat again.

Sincerely yours,

5

Dear 5,

Don’t worry about the food, worry about our surroundings. Worry instead about the rocks, worry instead about the water, worry instead about your fellow fish.

Sincerely yours,

7

Dear 7,

I am thinking about my fellow fishes. I am thinking about how they taste. I also hope they turn on their backs and float, So I can be eating them. Number 1 is old, hopefully his age catches up with him. Number 3 looks like he is starving, hopefully his hunger catches up with him. You with your big head, I hope you float soon enough.

Sincerely yours,

7

P.S. I am looking at you.

Dear Fellow fish 5,

I am sorry for not your starvation, seriously, ENOUGH!  You are starving so of course you wouldn’t care about anything besides food. As such, while I can’t give you food, I can give you great advice. Here is my advice to you: Stop moving around so much. When you move around, you use more energy causing you to get hungrier. 

Sincerely yours,

Fellow Fish 7

Dear 7,

Thank you for the advice!!!

Sincerely yours

5

(Fellow fish 5 told Fellow fish 14 that if he moved around more often than he won't go hungry as quickly. Needless to say, he died).

Dear 5,

I can’t believe you used my advice in such a way. I only told you that so you wouldn’t go hungry. How could you use it for such evil?

Yours,

7

Dear Fellow Fish 7,

And your advice worked, I’m not hungry anymore.

Sincerely,

5

Dear 7,

I’m sorry, let’s be friends again

Sincerely yours,

5
