Fish Germs, No Returns

If you will remember we became entangled in the pet fish saga pretty deeply when we first moved to our new house in our new city in our new state in our new time zone. And it did not end too well...less than 24 hours later. But who am I to say that would not have happened anyways if he were left in that Wal Mart tank...ya know what I am sayin? I must rid myself of this guilt. Oh Father, forgive me. But I got roped into this today. And let me just say. I actually got off the hook cause we were wanting a $200 parrot. And let me just say, that was so not happening.
But if at first you do not succeed, try...try...agian , right?
Baby Twerp has fallen in love and he is at the bowl every 8.421 seconds asking, Is he dead, yet?
He has such faith. When I tell him , No. It is still alive. Baby Twerp lets out a sigh and gives him a big ole kiss. I went it to cook supper and I could hear the boys playing puppy dog in the other room. It was keeping them occupied and I was actually moving along quite nicely on supper. And then I heard some sloshing. YES -- I said sloshing. It was more like splashing and lapping. And I heard Middle Twerp ask Baby Twerp, Ya wanna drink puppy?

I gulped, walked around the corner, and found this. Oh Lord, we must go get some Listerine.

Oh good grief!!!! I was good until the end. But then I thought that "puppy" was going to fall out of his bowl. But then the tongue in the water got me. Gag reflex kicking in BIG time.

Oh how funny. The things little boys can do and come up with. That's a beautiful fish. Do you know what kind it is?

Just. Amazing. What ever happened to the post about Barbie?! I had it in my reader and wanted to see the little movie and now it is gone and I'm all sad because I had expectations. No, reading blogs is NOT the highlight of my day. Not at all. I have many, many interests. I just can't think of any right now because I'm obsessed with the Barbie post.

treasia -- it is a beta fish from petco for 3.99 and it has to be by itself cause it will kill any other fish...i like him.
