I don’t know about you guys but I spend a lot of time thinking about how I want a dog. But as badly as I want one, I know I’m just not quite ready to be taking care of a puppy. So instead, I recently got a Betta Fish at the local aquarium! I named him Haruki Murakami (which is meant to be both ironic and completely sincere. I’m complicated, okay?). While he’s not quite the same thing as a dog, having a little pal around certainly makes life a little more fun! Also – you get to decorate an underwater sea home for a little miniature marine animal! And that’s just great. For more about Betta Fish, click here.
