Along with my posted birth certificate my Grandmother sent a handwritten note
Her wonderful scribe always comforts me, it just feels like home. She has the best handwriting I know.. even though this note outlined how dead I would be if I lost this. It basically said, “Bitch, I will cut you if you fuck this up.” in her born in 1932 kind of way.
It’s cute that she still takes care of me but this is essentially the first time I’ve handled my own affairs.. the woman still does my taxes. I’m too lucky.
how long did you have that fish?!?! didnt you only just get him? i think goldfish would have a better chance of survival on land than with you… ;P
We got them both on Sunday. Codex JuJu is a fantail and Marvin was the more expensive fishy. Codex was and is fine but the other one was just not settling. Maybe he was sick beforehand? Or Codex was bashing him long before we saw.
Marvin Gaye never really settled quite like Codex and we thought it was because he was a different kind of fish. But tonight he started floating sideways which is usually a pretty deadly sign. By the time we’d noticed, we realised Codex has been having at him was trying to eat him! So there I am squealing and frantically tapping on the glass to get him to stop but obviously my fantail fish is Jaws and relentless. Knowing that Marvin would be another Tyrone St casualty, I scooped him out into a takeaway container to at least pass away in peace. I’m so upset, I don’t know why he died by Codex is fine and hungrier than ever. Now I’m scared of the cold blooded killer I have left in that bowl..
