Morella welcomes the New Year at the Aquarium!




A short little story LaLa wrote after a day spent at the Aquarium


TWO-TOED TODD


Two-Toed Todd arrived at the Aquarium fascinated by all he had seen. But Two-Toed Todd allowed himself to be mesmerized by the wrong type of thing. The black fish with electric blue stripes, which no little boy should ever look at, danced just for him and Two-Toed Todd gaped at the fish with electric blue stripes for a long long time, perhaps longer than maybe he should have. All the other children hustled and bustled and clamored and coiled to see the birds with the black and white suits- that weren’t really birds not birds that do fly, but birds of a different kind that might seem like a fish to someone like you and I. Unfortunately for Two-Toed Todd he did not notice the very large and very important sign as he crept up to the edge to get a better look at the fishes he found divine. Two-Toed Todd wanted to take a dip in the steel blue water and dance with the black fish with electric blue stripes that no little boy should ever dance with, especially not before feeding time. Slowly Two-Toed Todd dipped his one big toe into the water that was very very cold. A particularly large black fish with electric blue stripes caught sight of Two-Toed Todd’s big toe and swam around tickling his one big toe until what Two-Toed Todd did not know did indeed happen, and not very slow. The particularly large black fish with electric blue stripes was telling his fish friends that it was all right! And just one minute later was all that it took. To eat all of Two-Toed Todd- even his foot!
