Fishy Business

MiniWarrior and I went to Petsmart the other day to stare at the animals. (MiniWarriors current obsession)

We visited the frogs. MiniWarrior got to hold one--and giggled with delight as it promptly pee'd on him.

Grits Mom teeth

Then it was off to visit the fish swirling around in their tanks.

We came across a goldfish so fat that his ass dragged on the gravel!

He was frantically flapping his little flippers and was all ehnnnn ehnnnn as he tried to get his gianormous ass off the floor of the tank.

MiniWarrior and I snickered at Mr FatAss while I covertly snapped pics (petsmart has a policy where you're not supposed to take pictures of their animals--I don't know why. Seems a stupid policy) with my iPhone for you all---cuz I'm all rebellious like that ;)

Normal sized fish

Mr FatAss

Ehnnn! Ehnnn!

Mmmm hmmm. Someones had one too many super sized shrimp macs!

That looks like swim bladder disorder. Or it could have eggs.

Sue: I asked the pet store worker about Mr FatAss...he said that it wasn't preggers and that it was normal/healthy--just big.
