I was cutting through the Bass Pro Shop at the Arundel Mills Mall

…When I saw a gigantic crate full of gigantic plush fish.

Despite the fact that I was a grown woman, I could not help it. I had to have one.

I grabbed the biggest one I could find, and proudly carried it all the way across the store and onto the cashier’s table.

Even though I had just finished shopping for a couple of nice outfits on killer sales at other stores, I think that my favorite purchase of the day was the one I made on my way back to the car.

(It’s also a lot of fun to wack little sisters over the head with.)

I think that I’ll name it Wade, after Jeremy Wade of River Monsters.

Tonight, I will be sleeping with the fishes.

Well…one fish, that is.
