I grabbed a stick and prodded it (expecting it to be squishy, when it was completely stiff) and managed to get the attention of a boy, who was about 10 I guess?
Kid: *looks at the fish, looks at me prodding it with the stick*
Me: Five bucks if you touch it
Kid: *gives me a WTF look*
Nearby parent: Those things are poisonous to the touch, you know
Me: *hands stick to the kid and runs off before anyone gets poisoned*
Sidenote: $5 was a bit cheap, huh? Surely these days kids would be wanting at least $10, if not $20…
