By now we have made friends here in Toronto (there are people attracted by free Swiss chocolate, it seems) and we were therefore asked to feed our neighbors’ pets while they were away.
The pets consist of a non-red fish and a cat. Basic rule is that one should not be the other one’s dinner.
The job looked pretty easy and the Dwarves were excited about it.
After 2 days, Dwarf 2 deciding we needed some entertainment, managed to steal some salt in the kitchen and quick as light dumped it into Rainbow’s aquarium.
Blondes can think quickly under pressure (or so they think) and within a minute I was wondering if Rainbow was a sea or a fresh water fish (he had not told me), how he would manage to survive if salt water was not his cup of tea, if a little boy’s heart would be broken in case of any fishy passing (can you miss a pet fish?), how much would a new fish cost (would we need to sell the car in order to replace an extremely rare, exotic non-red fish?), and finally where can you discreetly sell your kid on the internet in Canada?
Rainbow Warrior survived and Dwarf 2 was threatened to have to lend his favorite bear to his friend to comfort him in case a tragedy occurred.
I am thinking about taking money out of his college fund to pay for hair dye.
