My fish are all staring at me as I sit here on the couch- they are all looking at me accusingly with their little fishy eyes.
And every time I get up, they all swim and hide as fast as they can. You see, they know that I murdered one of their fishy friends. I didn't mean to, honestly. I take good care of them. I was cleaning the tank and one of the coral pieces shifted. I didn't pay attention to it. The next day the fish were acting kind of weird- giving me the "hey lady look" and everything. All of a sudden I noticed one of the fish swimming to nowhere under one of the coral pieces. I quickly reached in and lifted it up, and he swam away, but it was too late- he was pretty flat in the middle.
Then he disappeared for a day, and I started to think that maybe he plumped up again and was doing fine. But the fish all kept giving me the "hey lady look" so I did what anyone would do- made my kid scoop out the dead fish with the net. Yup, I made my kid do the dirty work- I am so not making mom of the year this year!
