Chicken Pox Fish

The wife and I had dinner at Rainforest Café recently … you know, the one in the MGM Grand Casino in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip.

They gave us a seat next to one of those salt-water aquaria situated throughout the restaurant, which was kind of neat, almost like a mini-floor show that we could watch while waiting for the food to arrive.
The 'Chicken Pox' Fish
However, one of the fishies in the tank was a bit odd. It had a grumpy look, a pasty-white skin, and lots of black dots all over its body – kind of like a sickly pale fish with chicken pox. If I had a weak stomach, I would have lost my appetite and not ordered seafood (as I wanted to do when reading the posted menu outside).

Ah, the heck with it. I just tapped the glass, shooed away the chicken-pox fish, and ordered the “Taste of the Islands” seafood combo.
