Well, it looks like Jennifer and Jamie–no, not my sisters Jennifer and Jamie!— were thinking along the same lines as Captain. He couldn’t decide whether he wanted to name his fish Peter or Nemo, so he started calling him Mister in the meantime… (I wonder where he gets his indecisiveness from!? 😉 Surely not me!) He finally decided on Mr. Peter Nemo! Try saying that five times fast!
I am a little worried about our dear Mr. Peter Nemo.
Fish are new to me. The lady at the store gave us general directions, and made sure we understood NOT to feed him them too much. We followed all her directions, but Captain’s fish just doesn’t seem to be doing too well.
I didn’t notice, until I was on the phone with a friend of mine and I was asking her questions about fish. (Her boys have had many in the past.) She said if their tail end starts sticking up in the air and they start floating to the top, its a bad sign. I glanced over my shoulder and sure enough that was exactly what Mr. Peter Nemo was doing… and still is.
After watching the fish for awhile, Captain asked me why his fish wasn’t swimming all over like the other fishies. I told him, that maybe his fish wasn’t feeling too good. He asked if his fish was going to die. I told him, someday he will, but lets hope he gets better. Poor Captains eyes filled with tears as he smiled at me and said, “I hope Mr. Peter Nemo gets better!” Me too Captain… me too.
