The Slightly Morbid Side to Fish Keeping

About a week or two ago, me and () were messageing on here about plants. We were talking about plants we wanted to get and what our favorite plants were.

I said "I just love baby tears, they are my favorite!" Then I realized, man, to somebody who is not into fish keeping, that would have sounded really wrong and morbid to them,

Has anyone else have something like that slip out of your mouth?

It doesn't have to be morbid, just something that you weren't trying to say, too.

I'd love to read them!

Not about fish, but I'm coaching my 6yo sons soccer team. In the fall I laughed at myself because I yelled out to them "Stop playing with your balls!" They were in a bad habit of picking up their soccer balls and also kicking them when I was trying to explain the next activity.

Haha, boys will be boys.

I typed a phrase that actually grossed me out when I re-read it,"I just defrosted my first cube of bloodworms!"

(As if that's a normal thing to get so excited about)

"I just ordered Some shrimp in and can't wait for them to get here!" All my coworkers turned to me and looked at me like I grew a second head. I also told them I plan on breeding my CPD, and they look at me like I'm crazy. They just don't understand. That's why I am here among other Aquarium Addict.

My parents always look at me like i am crazy when I start talking about fish. You can tell they pretend to be excited and like they know what I am talking about, but they don't. :lol;

When I was starting to make wood jewelry, I walked into an exotic lumber store and told a room full of guys I was just looking for some wood to play with...

I can just hear the silence

And then…

Best!
