Now, we have the empty fish bowl, with the shiny black marbles at the bottom, just sitting here in our house, reminding us of our dead fish.
So, let's have a vote, shall we? Get excited because YOU get to help decide what lucky amphibian/invertebrate/theskysthelimit will join the Mosby's.
The candidates (or possible Pets in China):
1. A Fish. Classic and low maintenance. But come on, boring, shmoring. (After the first one, which I loved Zachary, really, I loved it!) And besides, how could we just replace Porto like that so soon? It's insensitive really.
2. 2 Twin Jelly Fish. Or maybe girl and boy, non related, jelly fish, which brings the possibility of jelly fish babies, which would be super cool. We could make a few bucks off each one, too, even better. We could probably even brand them as American Jelly Fish. Perfect!
3. A Newt. A Chinese fire bellied newt to be exact. I happen to have some experience with these guys. My brother grew up obsessed with reptiles and amphibians and my dad was sure to fill our house with them. So, I mean... I'm pretty much an expert. Actually, I've always really loved newts. They're like little puppies. Little amphibian puppies. They have rounded faces and fingers. It's cute guys. Really.
5. A seahorse. Ya. That's right, I saved the best for last. Can you imagine having a sea horse as a pet?! How cool is that? But again, I have no idea what to do with a sea horse. Salt water? Obviously...right? And, what do they eat? Maybe I could get a boy and girl and then the daddy seahorse could have babies! That would be cool, mainly because then there would be a pregnant male in our house... which is weird now that I type it. Why would I want that? It's exotic. That's why. But for the record, a pregnant male seahorse is the only pregnant male I want in our house. Don't worry Z. I'm not wishing weird things on you.. we've got enough hormones & cravings going on in our house. And we need you to be the stable one Z.
So, what do you think friends?
A boring ole' fish, Electrifying (harharhar) jelly fish, A Red Breasted Newt, An Itty Bitty Turtle or a Knocked Up Boy Sea horse?!
It's up to you Readers!!! And Zachary's approval, of course. Which makes me realize I should probably have asked him if all the pets above are cool. Nah. They're cool. Remember he has that Bob Marley attitude lately. So it's alllll goooood.
