Tilly Rivers- fish killer!

  “You thought you had it bad the Bitch BOILED me…”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noooooooooooo…please. Don’t make me go home with her….

Boris #6…should I or shouldn’t I? I was thinking of getting another fish….hmmm…let’s recap on the last five shall we?

Boris # 5 was my last fish.  Yes, he’s dead. Like Boris # 1 to 4.  B5 (for short) was a multi coloured blue male beta fighting fish- flushed; joining his brethren in the great toilet bowl in the sky.

I don’t mean to kill them, it just….happens. Believe me; I have house plants that thrive well, {well…semi well…~giggles~} two dogs that are all in good health, and yet when it comes to fish…..

Boris #4 just disappeared one day. I tend to believe that he just packed up his bags and left, and was not lunch for my cat. Please…just let me have my fantasy…. {smiles}…so technically I didn’t kill him right?

Boris #3….sigh….committed fish suicide. I found him on the floor beside the bowl…he just…jumped.

Boris #2….well….I thought the plug was in the drain…I DID…and when I washed the bowl and stones and… fish…let’s just say, there was no flushing needed. {yes, that day my blonde roots ran deep…what can I say! ~giggles~}

Boris # 1…he was a happy fish, swam around the bowl, and would greet me in the morning for his food. One day I moved him…to what I thought was a nice sunny spot…it was sunny all right…poor Boris…became fish soup…

And what tragic end became of B5? Cat? Nope; fish-suicide? Nope; Drain? Nope; Boiled? Nope. {see I learn from my mistakes ~smiles~} B5…well I kinda-sorta-maybe forgot to feed him….yes…he too was flushed and went on to fishy heaven. Do you think they are comparing stories?

“You thought you had it bad the Bitch BOILED me…”

Okay so getting another fish is a bad idea….maybe I’ll get a Cactus….

‘Did you hear that?’ I’m pretty sure there was a great sigh of relief from all fish everywhere…
