"Every Two Hours"

The boys acquired a betta fish from a girl in the neighborhood.

They named him Grumpy Tom Simpson.Betta Splendens

He arrived with a list of instructions: when to feed him, clean the bowl, etc.

The last item on the list says: "Tap his bowl every two hours to make sure he's still alive."

  1. Oh, dear Tricia! Some caring, reasonable person in your life should have warned you that the answer all fish adoption questions is "NO!" We took a goldfish home from a carnival when my son was three, assuming it wouldn't last more than a few weeks. We still had that wretched thing when he left for COLLEGE! (No, I am not exaggerating.) It must have weighed 1/2 lb. by the time it died -- too big to flush. The last six months it was swimming upside down and I was researching humane methods of euthanasia for goldfish (clove oil and vodka, it turns out, though Goldie left us on her own before I had to inflict death-by-liquor).
