Happy birthday

Thursday marks one year since adoption day.

The children’s eyes gleamed from their new acquisition; ours surreptitiously rolled.

One year in a bowl, no name, no companion, fed twice a day except when we forget or go on vacation. 

Happy birthday, indeed.

  1. Yes, kids don't realise that a pet means responsibility! Well said.

    1. Nope, not to stay alive. But did you even wonder what quality of life means for a fish? Maybe it's wrong to keep one in a bowl. I don't know.

    2. Interesting question! I work two mornings a week at the big aquarium in Chicago scrubbing tanks from the inside so I am underwater for a few hours each week with a whole bunch of them. Turtles, too! The thought has occurred to me just about every week!
