We had been given fish from our student the week before as a gift. When Shirley came in to work Wednesday morning (after our two days off) she found them taking a permanent nap. They were long gone by the time I arrived, but I was told they didn’t smell like roses. We had planned to name them in class today, so Shirley rushed off to the pet store at lunch to pick up some replacements. No one seemed to notice that the fish’s spots had moved around a little bit. We got a very interesting list of names when we brain stormed during warm up, such as “cat”, “dog”, and “Bobbie” (named after one of our students). Shirley and I helped out with a few suggestions too… in the end the winning names were “Bubbles” and “Angry fish”.
