Pet Owner

Monday, August 21, 2006
For my 28th birthday my girlfriend gave me something I've not had in my adult life (don't go there!)... a pet! I am now the proud owner of a beautiful blue male betta fish named Gustav (after, incidentally, King Gustav V of Sweden whose name seems to be spelled either with a "v" or an "f"... I prefer the "v".)
Gustav will hopefully) keep me company here in Salem while I go to school and help me be a responsible pet owner. We'll see how that goes... historically "maintenance" is not my strongest attribute. But I'm already attached to my little fish and let's hope this goes well!

My god...the mind reels at the thought. You've never even so much as shared your living space with a potted plant. Now you have a fish! My entire sense of reality is crumbling before my very eyes!

Congrats, either way.

Just remember... fish, as a general rule, do not swim upside down.
