Just put the bowl down and nobody gets hurt!!!

Right now I am carrying an enormous goldfish bowl around in my hands. It is a beautiful bowl - custom made - it doesn't have any fish in it anymore - it doesn't have anything in it except perhaps the odd drop of salt water when I am feeling sad. I carry it aound everywhere. I sit with it on the tram. I have it in class. Amazingly I even hold on to it as I practise yoga. When I do my cycling class I balance it on my knees. I never let go of it. I don't want to break it.
    I suppose I could put new fish in it or maybe some flowers or an ant farm or something. But none of those things would ever fit in this bowl ; this bowl was made for things that no longer exist.Or perhaps they do exist but not in a way I can comprehend.
It's so heavy though. And it stops my hands from holding anything else instead.
I need to find some place to put this bowl down. I don't want to smash it but I need to find a way to put it gently down and pick up something else.

I have a goldfish. In fact I have a family of fishes that would make your bowl very happy. And your bowl would sparkle their goldern little hearts.

But they don't like salt water so you will have to change it.
