I hope you are not eating ANYTHING while you are reading this, as what I am about to impart to you may spoil your appetite just a tadge.
You could be forgiven for thinking that I am having a lovely day out enjoying the piscatorial delights of the Birmingham Sea Life Centre.
However, I'm actually out shopping ….and in the middle of a shopping centre ...... where they’ve put tanks of fish that have been specially trained to nibble all the yucky bits off your feet, definitely not nom, nom, nom!
The bumf says that Fish Therapy is a natural form of exfoliation with amazing results in Turkey! Do you know, when I was on my inadvertent holiday in Turkey I swore I was being nibbled when I went in the sea, but Lucy dismissed it as “Mere fantasy, Monkey” ….. (This coming from a young woman who won’t even paddle in the sea because of her traumatisation watching Jaws). Now I know I was right and that I was indeed being feasted upon by Garra Rufa fish ……. yeeewwwwy!
I was repulsed yet strangely fascinated and drawn into the idea at the same time.
I sat a while, and almost took my shoes and socks off ….. but I could not go through with it! I hope that if I come back in another life, I don't come back as a Garra Rufa fish, as I’d never be able to go nom, nom, nom again!
