a good omen

On my walk to work today, I saw this really adorable dead fish on the concrete. At first I couldn't even tell what it was; I just saw some object on the ground with black dots, which I soon realized were many swarming flies. I'm not sure why I couldn't tell right away that it was a dead fish, because it was completely intact. Its mouth was huge and wide open and disturbing. It made me wonder, how did s/he get there? I mean, did someone catch it while fishing and then just completely abandon it? Did it commit fish suicide? What a mystery! Although I could tell that the lil guy etched himself in my memory, I drew a note to myself during work so that I'd remember and draw him later (just in case). And, TA DA.
