As I was talking to my mother last night she said:
“I just think that it is great that you got a fish. Other than rock and roll, beer, and cigarettes what are you committed to? Now you are committed to a living thing.”I really think that quote should stand on its own.
In other fish related news, I am thinking about naming my fish Aoide the muse of song, but I am not quite sure how to pronounce it. While I realize that this might be one of the more pretentious things that I have done, no small feat, I do like the name and it is my fish. Also, it has the added benefit of being a female name which I believe is a step towards what my mother is implying.
