Happy Birthday, Sashimi!
So, one year ago this month I brought home a new baby, Sashimi. You all helped to name him and I must say, the name has fit him perfectly. Considering all he has been put through, I honestly can’t believe he’s survived a whole year in my care.
*I dropped him in the sink one time as I changed the water in his bowl. I picked him up with my hands cause I had no idea what else to do.
*I have given him water-shock at least a half dozen times (ie. the water was too cold, or I put in too many drops).
*I thought he was actually dead a time or two because he sank to the bottom of the bowl.
*I have transported him from my bathroom to my bedroom and now he’s at my office… all in search of the best place for him.
*I moved him to an entirely new bowl once because I thought the old one wasn’t cute enough.
*and I have forgotten to feed him and forgot him before traveling… more than once.
Needless to say, he’s a resilient little guy. While I may be guilty of being a bit neglectful of him at times, he’s definitely about as spoiled as fish could be. And the same can be said of my bird, “Twitter” and my dog, “Sandee.”
Seriously, I am just shy of building a freaking ark.
