Fish Dinner

I traded eight half-charged double-A batteries for a small fish this morning. I would’ve preferred something less volatile, but you have to take what you can get.
Fish is not ideal in most cases these days. When it’s fresh the taste is almost surreal, but nearby bodies of water are so overly contaminated that there’s no guarantee you’ll finish your dinner without some strange sickness. Unfortunately, it was either I risk the fish or I try my hardest to eat a handful of batteries tonight. I’m far too hungry for that.
A fair trade I suppose… At least they weren’t C’s. My flashlight uses C’s…
