True story du'jour
This morning I went to the pet store and bought some stuff that promised to "clear cloudy water with just one drop."
The water was so cloudy you could barely see the fish.
I ran the rest of my errands and when I got home I added the "one" magical drop to the fish water.
Then ,instead of my usual old lady nap, I had to watch this movie because it was already late.( I NEVER watch t.v. during the day.)
I had read this book before so I knew that the ending would be sad. But I didn't expect to bawl my head off ,knowing what was coming.
Well, that's what I get for thinking . ha.
So the movie ends. I am bawling .I go into the kitchen to get my stuff ready and dry off my tears ,to take the movie back and go to Walmart. What to my horror do I see?
3 of the goldfish floating dead in their bowl. (with the still cloudy water BTW)
That stuff killed them! Yes, this made me bawl some more.
I rescued the remaining fish and got him out of that poisoned water. So far, he is still alive. But who knows how long that will last.
The other 3 had a very quick funeral.
Later on I thought "hmmmm, I hope they were really dead and not unconscious."
Oh well, this turn of events does not surprise me. I hadn't named any of them because I figured something like this would happen.
