Joshua got a fish last week from school.
So we bought a bowl, some fish food, and a little ceramic penguin to keep the fish company.
The name, however, has been somewhat of an issue. We are now on name number 3.
When he came home, the fish’s name was “Tails.” Pretty cool. It was an homage to Sonic the Hedgehog. But a few hours later, he was calling the fish “Silver.” I can get behind that, too – Lone Ranger and all.
But then the name changed to “Fishy.” Perhaps Tails and Silver were too complicated. I get that. Sometimes I call Joshua “little boy,” so maybe he’s taking his cues from me.
The issue of pet names inspired today’s question:
“What’s the greatest pet name you’ve ever heard?”
