Sushi To Go

Um, we need a new fish.

Our friend Sushi has swum off into uncharted waters.

I discovered him this morning. He was... a little less active than usual. A little less orange as well.

The kids all took it as expected. A bit sad, but not unreasonably so. We called their mother at work and gave her the bad news. She took it pretty well. ;)

However, the mind of the child, no matter how deeply in mourning, still doesn't miss any potential for opportunism.

When I mention to the five-year-old that I'm sure we can probably get another fish, he says:

"If they're all out of fish, can we get a dog???"

"Daddy, when can we get a new fish?" Keigan asks, again.

"Soon, little buddy." Dad says.

"Never." Mom says.

perhaps i shall place a wager on this battle of wills.
