Too Late

It’s 10 p.m. and I decide to give my son’s fish a treat before I turn in for the night. As I flip open the tank, the lid falls off the fish food container and hundreds of freeze-dried blackworms disperse into the water. I desperately try to scoop them up, but I’m not fast enough. The fish dart about, opening and closing their mouths on the deluge of food. They will probably die.
