Christian's goldfish passed away this morning (was taken to heaven, if you ask Christian. Yesturday, Christian noticed that his fish was laying on the bottom of the vase. David poked him with a chopstick and he started swimming around, but he looked like he had some kind of fish stroke. He was swmimming on the side and using one fin.
Christian was very upset and was crying. We told him he could have Liam's fish (Liam doesn't really know the difference). Nothering could console him. I called down to Starbucks and found out my friend Allison was working. We drove down, got Christian a hot chocolate and he got a hug from Allie and he was all better. (He has a crush on Allie).
When he got home, he told us he would let Liam's fish be his.
This morning the fish was not moving, so when Christian was busy and not watching, David took the fish on his final journey to our toilet. Christian noticed the fish was missing so David told him that the fish was taken to heaven. A kind of sea-life rapture.
Well, it was a nice weekend with the fish. We will see if Liam's fish makes it. If it lives for a couple of weeks, we will get that fish a couple of friends.
