fish, named "Red
" by Seth, has taken her last swim. She had been "sick" for weeks. At least I guess
she was "sick." Red wouldn't eat for months, and one day I do believe I saw her have a nervous breakdown. (If fish have such things.) No kidding
! :-) I strolled into the room where her bowl was located and found a very interesting sight! She was tearing around the water in break neck speed circles, and half of her body (the top half) was out of the water! Rather. . .intriguing. I was wishing I had my camera but couldn't tear my eyes away long enough to run for the equipment.
Red was never the same after that, but we did not have the heart to "dispose" of her. After all, she has been with us at least four years. A good many of my blogger friends have also taken a turn keeping her. Can't even remember all the ones who "fish sat" for us ~ Charlotte F, Julie A, Nancy L, and I think Marianne B had her once.
I hope I am not considered heartless after not attending her "flushing" ceremony. I let the men in this house take care of that job.
