The rule is – if you catch ’em and keep ’em, you clean ’em.
Hubby and Daughter went fishing on Father’s Day. The intent was two-fold
- to spend time together
- to catch fish
They spent about 7 hours together.
They caught 3 fish each.
Of those 6 fish caught, Daughter kept 2 and brought them home.
I recited the rule, emphasizing the last part “you clean ’em.”
“Okay” was all she said.
I laughed. She had never cleaned a fish before. I wasn’t even sure she had watched it done from start to finish. AND, one of the fish was still gasping.
Sometimes the only way to learn is to do. With a few instructions and a lot of supervision, Daughter cleaned both fish, rinsed them and popped them into the freezer.
“Now, all we need are a few more fish and we can have a fish fry!” Daughter said.
A few more?? Guess she’s forgotten how many fried fish I can eat. 😉
