ssc short shameful confession #8 written by Jana February 4, 2009 I once had a pet fish that I named Sushi. It died shortly after the birth of my son. It was weeks before I noticed. After that I vowed never to have a pet again. Then broke that vow about 6 years ago when I became a cat lady Share this:ShareEmailPinterestFacebookTwitterRedditPrint 8 comments 0 Facebook Twitter Google + Pinterest Jana previous post giggly next post in the commons More Posts Like This One short shameful confession #5 short shameful confession #24 short shameful confession #12 short shameful confession #28 short shameful confession #9 short shameful confession #23 short shameful confession #6 short shameful confession #17 short shameful confession #14 short shameful confession #25 8 comments Deborah February 4, 2009 - 4:07 pm Isn’t a pet fish named Sushi rather doomed from the start? Reply sarah k. February 4, 2009 - 6:28 pm I once had a mouse named Chicken Tonight. He was intended as a meal for my boa constrictor, who turned out not to be hungry. Reply jana February 4, 2009 - 9:46 pm Yes, I’m afraid that poor Sushi probably was doomed from the beginning. He was a betta and would try to ‘fight’ himself when we put a mirror to his bowl. Such strangeness. Sarahk, you are a sick, sick woman. But I like you that way. :) Reply Erin G. February 4, 2009 - 10:22 pm Um…I love that the mouse was named “Chicken Tonight”! Anyway, a cat won’t go and die on you without bugging you a whole lot first. Sheesh. Mine won’t even let me sleep eight hours uninterrupted. Also? I just noticed that my “word verification” for posting this comment? …is “DEADER”! Hah! Reply [kɹeɪ̯ɡ̊] February 4, 2009 - 10:30 pm That’s really funny, and also sad, but mostly funny. Also, that’s really clever name for a pet fish. And I love cats too. Reply cd0103 February 5, 2009 - 3:49 am I had three betas over eight years named Sushi, Sushi 2, and Sushi 3. They lived a long time for betas. Two died from old fish age and one I accidentally killed by not de-chlorinating the water. They were fun and I need to get another one.
