In response to “Friday Fictioneers Challenge.”

“What’s all the commotion about Charlie.”

“It’s an audition for a seafood commercial. They took our glamour shots this morning. I was one of four to be called back a few minutes ago to speak our lines. They narrowed that field down to three. And I am one of the three.”

“Looks like you have some colorful competition.”

“Oh, hoiti toi, there are just a bunch of Koi. Wait, here comes the producer. I hope I’m the winner.”

“Sorry, Charlie. We are looking for someone who has good taste, not taste good.”

    I haven’t thought about that commercial in years. Thanks for bringing it back in such a delightful manner.

    Dear Danny,

    So after all these years, has Charlie given up on Starkist only to be musseled out koi? Poor fish doesn’t know whether he needs to have good taste or taste good. Well done.

      Poor Charlie, he’s developing a chronic case of depression. As always thanks for the thoughtful comment.

    I’m for the underdog, or in this case…the underfish. “)

      Thanks for the comment. Charlie will be fine. He’s not a quitter. Bigger fish in the sea you know and all that.
