Air vs Water

by Bichon

Hey Fishy.

Hello Harry.

How are you today? Your tank is looking nice and clean.

I'm alright, a bit warm though.

Really? It's nice and cool out here!

What do you mean, 'out here'?.

I mean your tank heater mustn't be on the right setting.

But why can't you feel the warmth?

I don't live in the water, silly fish.

Yes you do. Everything is the water, stupid human.

No. I'm breathing in air 24/7. You hardly need to come up for air!

No one can breathe that much air, that's ridiculous.

Living your life in water seems pretty weird too, you know.

Oh hi Harry! How are you doing today?

Huh? Right, short term memory...

Harry (human) talks first. The fish talks straight after him. The conversation is in this order the whole time.
Got the idea of this from when I took my fish out of its tank to read it a story. I was about 6 or younger at the time. Whoops lol.
