For almost 20 years he/she(?) was featured act of the “Aquashow” extravaganza at a local private pond. A true professional, “The Goldfish” spent his/her(?) early years apprenticing at the Didropon water hole before being ‘called up’ to the ‘big time’. There “The Goldfish” was happy to work for only minimum wage and slogged on gracefully through the blazing summer heat and winter’s chilly chill, delighting the fortunate few.
He/she(?) leaves behind his/her(?) companion of 15 years, the alluring “Other Goldfish”.
In a gesture reflecting management’s appreciation, the little tails and top hat costume that “The Goldfish” wore in the legendary “Hook, line and sinker” dance number will be retired and put on display, never to be worn again.
