Last weekend when we were at Balmoral Beach, I found a (very dead) puffer fish.

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…

  2. Ahhh! Well, the woman on beach said it was the spikes that were poisonous to the touch, but Dan reckons only when they’re still alive.

    I prefer Rish’s version, just quietly ;)
