R.I.P. Spotty


Sad news from our household. After less than a week, Spotty Lucky DeRogatis-Frilingos was discovered floating aimlessly behind the faux grass on the left side of the goldfish bowl. Emma was very sad and announced (despite evidence to the contrary) that "Spotty was my most lucky fish!" We gave Spotty a traditional goldfish burial at sea (you know what I mean) and now we are down to two. Emma has changed Ariel's name to Lucky because it is a gender neutral name and who can really tell with goldfish? In her words, "it's both a girl and boy name and that seems right because I think the brown spot on the tail means he is a boy, but who knows?" So now we have Speedy and Lucky who seem to be enjoying the extra space in the bowl. Also, Emma is no longer eating fish sticks.

It's a sad sad day. I'll fly the flag at half-mast...

And sorry about the fish sticks. If we ever went on a fish stick strike, my kids would starve...

What a cutie! Maybe tell her they call them fish sticks because the fish like to eat them...then again, you may find one floating in your tank if you tell her that!

Sorry to hear about your fish Emma. I'm sure he'll be missed.
