The American housewife

I felt like a real American housewife today as I slipped on my sweatpants and took a trip to Wal-Mart without even showering.

I had to pick up food for our cats and our newly acquired fish - Billy. Albie and I went to a wedding yesterday. On each table, underneath the flower boquet, was a beta fish swimming around in a little bowl. We were ordered by the bride to take one home.

Now I'm sitting here watching the the fish, making sure Billy doesn't become the next snack for Sophie or Pip.

Our fish's name is Gilbert. They can be friends. :)

I went to a wedding in 2002. They were also giving away Betas at the wedding. My friend Keely took one home. It is still alive, in a bowl on top of her fridge to this day. His name is Captain. Well, I think it's a "he".

Hey, we just put OURS on top of the fridge!!! It's the only place the cats cannot get to it...

The poor creature will be lonely. Just imagine what it would be like if you were the only one of your species living upon somebody's fridge!

You'll have to get a bigger tank and some other fish to keep him/her company!

Some sturdy netting on top will stop the cats.
