In the mid-1990s, while working at a strip club in the middle of nowhere Texas (not an exaggeration), I met a couple, Fish and Michele. The phrase they coined, "If Wishes Were Fishes, the World Would Be an Ocean of Joy," inspired this piece. Although it was nearly 15 years after the fact that this was made, the sentiment never left me. I hope to meet them again someday to thank them for their inspiring this piece.
