Some of you may have been wondering how Biggy the fish is doing.
Let me correct that to “how Biggy the fish was doing”.
He lasted about one more week than the other fish, so about two weeks total.
The kids were not distraught at all. They think that’s what fish are for – bring them home and check each day if they’re floating or swimming.
I came home from work one day and was greeted by “He’s floating!” I noted somewhere in my head that I would need to scoop him out and throw him away (I’m not stocking our septic tank with fish).
And then I got distracted by more important tasks
…for a few days.
When Beta asked me why Biggy’s eyes were turning white, I knew I couldn’t put it off any longer.
So now we are the proud owners of…
And we would like to keep it that way for a while.
The fish that are in the Nile will die, and the Nile will become foul, and the Egyptians will find difficulty in drinking water from the Nile.
