My employer behaved badly today. When I got home, I felt the need to do something productive that had nothing to do with work, which put kanji study and lesson planning out. So I gutted a fish for the first time. It made me feel better.
(Yesterday I’d bought three small whole fish planning to try this over the weekend; perhaps I am clairvoyant.)
It actually didn’t occur to me until after I’d done it that the whole activity might be kind of aggressive. Fish do not look much like people; I felt a little bad for them, but I don’t think I considered the gutting of the fish as something related to my boss.
