Cheez-It and Goldfish
Once there was a Cheez-It that met a goldfish. He winked and said, “Hi, good looking.” She said, “Hi, how’s it going, Handsome?”
Cheez-It was floating like a square yellow flower on top of the tank. He wanted to marry Goldfish but he had to sink down to get to her. He decided to catch a ride in a water bottle submarine.
When Goldfish saw Cheez-It inside the bottle, she was amazed at how strange he looked. Cheese-It was inside the bottle waving at her.
Then suddenly the water bottle cap exploded off, and he got sucked out into the tank. Cheez-It got very mushy and soaked through with water. He started to dissolve into little bits of cheese. Goldfish cried out, “Oh, no!!!! My love is gone forever.” And then she jumped out of the tank and dried to death.
