Hurry, it’s over here.
Are you sure?
Yes now get a move on; we’ve got ten seconds before we forget what we are on about.
What a nuisance, forget my head if it wasn’t screwed on.
Stop bitching and take a look.
Oh my, would you believe it?
What was that again?
Yes, yummy, eh?
I hate rock squid, it like eating snot.
But it’s good for you, think of the omega three you’ll be getting.
I’d rather your omega any day.
Stop being rude and tuck in.
Blurk, yuck, do I have to?
I saw cousin Bluey this morning.
He was swimming by, waved at me at least I think it was a wave.
You have doubts?
It was in a perpendicular position.
Have you upset Bluey lately?
I called him conceited and selfish.
Well, he does hand around with the pack.
Mum, why are we school fish?
Its what we are my dear.
Have we always been like this?
Yes, our protection. When predators attack, the school protects us.
Didn’t help Leo and Maurice yesterday.
True, but some have to sacrifice for the good of all.
I’ll stick by you mum.
Can I go swim over there, mum?
No way, you stick with us.
But there’s something yummy to eat there.
Fastest way to get eaten son. Stay in school.
But it’s the same old day after day mum.
You swim away and get eaten then don’t come crying to me.
