13 Cent Fish Are Too Expensive

Littleme was worried about her goldfish, Shakespeare. He lived in a smallish bowl with pretty floaty leaves and a submerged dead tree. Apparently though, Shakespeare is a filthy little bugger. And he refused to keep his bowl tidy.

Well, Littleme declared he needed a newer, bigger home. Actually, she announced that it would be me who would be cleaning his apartment until our little poet gets his new digs.

Ugh............I have been checking Craigslist, Freecycle and everywhere else for a cheap or free tank for this fish-to no avail. "Mommy!!!!! I have to have this fish for my science project......I have to..........." Silly mom, fish aren't for kids...............

     So, yes, I bought the little aquatic thingy. Well, really-Littleme put out the coins for the poor lonely orphaned creature and now it's ME who's paying for it. Hahahaha....ugh. And now, yes, Shakespeare has his own grand mansion complete with pretty gravel, several of the best plastic plants available from China, and it's all for himself. (Maybe I should rename her as LittleBetterThanMe.)

As for me, I have just lint in my pockets now-no more cash for fishy fishy that cross my ocean. But I really do have just a little something more; I have a front row view of the little girl who's heart just bursts with love for 3 inches of orange cuteness. And you can't put a price on that.
