How to Kill a Fish

How to Kill a Fish

Michael is all ready to cook a special dinner for Christina in an attempt to woo her.  He sets down his groceries and goes through his recipe books. He dices, measures, boils and even dances as he cooks. However, when he is ready to prepare the fish, he begins to hear sounds coming from it. He tries to convince himself that it’s just a fish — but he just can’t seem to bring himself to kill it.
