Shimmery scales are so beautiful! Like the golden scales on that koi.
Or these mosaic scales.

Or these scales on the rooftop and walls ofAntoni Gaudi's Casa Batllo in Barcelona, Spain.

Isn't that house amazing?
Whenever I see seats in a theater or opera house, I think of fish scales.

I've never been to an opera, but I'd like to one day.
My husband and I could make a real night of it!
I could wear a dress of shimmery scales.

(Do people wear sequins anymore?)
And I'd take a beaded purse.

Wait! Those aren't beads. They're iguana scales.
Relax, iguana! I wouldn't wear you.
Todd would have to pick me up in this scaly car.

We'd go out to dinner first, of course.
There would be flowers on the table.

Dahlia scales. I mean petals.
And we'd start off with the exotic fruit monstera, because it's so scaly.

I've never had monstera. Have you?
Hopefully it would be more tender than this scaly thing!

We'd go to the opera house early and sneak backstage, to listen to the performers warming up.
What would we hear?
They'd be doing their scales, of course!

Tell me, what scales did I leave out?
And if you've ever worn sequins, did it make you feel like you were wearing scales? Or is it just me that loves to imagine myself as a fish?
Oh! I almost forgot! One of my favorite books--and I liked the movie too.
Have you read or seen it? What did you think?
Have a wonder-full Monday, everyone!
