soooooo... I was bad. I spent a while talking with my friend the other day at the LFS
where he works. We are just chatting along, having a great time and these poor bettas and just looking up from their cups at me. One is especially pretty and I recognize him as one that has been there for a few weeks (he is white with teal fins). My friend sees me eyeballing the fish and after 10 minutes, I've bought the fish and a home for him. BUT, the kicker is that he isn't for me!!! My reasoning for buying the little guy is that I remember my boyfriend saying he wanted one, but he was just afraid he would kill it. So, I have the key to my boyfriend's apt. already because I had to pick up some stuff I accidentally left at his place. Why not set up the betta while he is gone to?
Nothing beat the "my girlfriend is crazy but I still love her" look that I received upon the discovery of his new pet. Oh, and he really likes the betta (I would have taken the betta to my place anyway if my b/f didn't want him)
He also mentioned that someone has two little gerbils they are giving away for free and that he "wouldn't mind" if I adopted them. Such a sweetie!!!
