Play With Fishes


As usual, i take Miaomiao to the lakeside garden in our community in the afternoon. Many kids are playing here with the accompany of their guardians. And some people are fishing beside the South Lake. Miaomiao runs and plays with other kids on the road.

After a while a middle aged uncle carrys a bucket with a half bucket water with sevral fishes and then puts it on the lawn and continues to go fishing again. Many kids run there to watch the fishes, so does Miaomiao.
At first they are just watching. After a while one kid picks the leaves nearby to feed the fishes.Other kids feel funny and follow. They all start to pick leaves to feed fishes. And then, a little girl finds a little stick and begins to poke the poor fishes. Though this behaviour is opposed by us, she totally doesn’t listen and continues. Other kids follow her behaviour too. Miaomiao also wants to poke the fishes, but she can’t find a stick nearby. So she turns to me for help. I refuse her and at last she finds one by herself and starts to poke fishes with other children.
Seeing the poor fishes are nearly turning over, the guardians including me stop these naughty children and threaten them that the uncle would come and blame them if they continue to play with these poor fishes. Then these kids run away. But some still go back to watch the fishes and even touch them by their little fingers sometimes, including Miaomiao. That middle aged uncle comes back to put new fish into the bucket twice during this period.
On our way home we come across a little girl and her mom going home, with a fish on the mom’s hand. She says that this fish is given by that middle aged uncle because her daughter loves the fish and wants to feeds fish at home.
But i think the most interesting thing for these little kids is to play something with friends together, rather than the thing itself. They were playing with fishes happy that time. But if they have fishes at their home, i don’t think they also like to play with them. At least Miaomiao is like this.
