My fish have way too much fun. They swim in circles around a ceramic Tom Sawyer log cabin playing tag. Bug will rest for awhile, but then Haley will nip at his tail and they’ll start up again. Over and over, circling and circling.

Then there’s Guapo, my Betta fish. He’s in a vase on the counter next to the two. He’s gorgeous, if you can say a fish is gorgeous. He must be very bored, sitting in the vase all day. Seriously, the only time he moves is if he needs a breath of fresh air, or if I put those little pellets on the surface for him to eat. I wonder if he stares at Bug and Haley, hour after hour, wishing he could eat them. They’re small enough.
