PetSmart Ramblings

Interaction witnessed in the fish department of PetSmart (imagine the most country accent you can think of for all participants):

10 Year Old Little Boy: Papaw! Is that a fish?
Papaw: Naw, that's a snail.
5 Year Old Little Girl: Can I hold one of them fish?
Pawpaw: Naw, we cain't hold the fish.

Funny. Anyway, this weekend we went to PetSmart to buy some new fish for Kevin's tank. Unbeknownst to me, the second Skeletor fish died at some point (after living with Kevin for about a year-nobody tells me anything!), so it was time for some new additions. We got two new guppy boys (Sparky and Jerry) and one guppy girl (Frieda) who we got for free because she was a semi-grown fry. She's a little shy, but the others have made themselves at home. We also got a new Black Mystery Snail (as of yet nameless) to try to help control the algae situation. And when I say situation, I mean SITUATION!

In other news, I got a haircut and my head feels 5 pounds lighter. I got probably 3 inches cut off, and I got the layers freshened up, so it doesn't feel so flat and heavy. I like it so far. I think it will dry faster now. Maybe I can abandon my "I'm running late for work and don't have time to finish blow drying, so I'll just turn the heat on in the car and use the vents to dry my hair" practice. We shall see!
