I have a bit of a sad story, you see I cleaned the fish tank last night and this morning when we awoke I had Kev check to see how they were doing. He gets out of bed and walks into the hall to the tank. It's quiet for several seconds...
Me: Is everything OK?
Kev: Can fish be dead on the bottom of the tank or do they float to the top?
Me: They don't always float
Kev: Ooooo... it looks like you got them all this time, even the sucker fish.
Me: Owwww... that sinks (sad) Well, maybe this is a sign that we should put away the tank and stop having fish.
Kev: But I LIKE having fish... Oh look the sucker fish is moving!!! He survived!
Me: How about that....
Here's the thing, this is not the first Fish Holocaust I've been responsible for. It's actually the second. The last time I gave the tank a good cleaning I killed them all then too... EXCEPT for the sucker fish. That guy has survived numerous attempts on his life and lived to tell the tale.
This fish is at least 5 or 6 years old and may have moved with me from Pittsburgh to WV. Then he definitely moved from WV to NC. He rode in a bucket on the front seat of my car and stayed in the bucket for at least a week until the tank was set up. Then a move from the apartment to the house and he's been in the house almost 3 years. He survived the Great Fish Holocaust of 2007 AND 2009. Many of his brethren have fallen, yet the sucker fish remains...
He's even survived the harassment of 2 curious kitties.
So, here's the candy! I have a "Bundle Up" stamp from Studio Calico (check out my project a few posts down.) a jar of red Stickles, a Warm Gray 01 Copic Ciao marker, stamps from Studio G, some awesome designer paper from Debbie Mum and some stamped images! Wanna win??
