Okay, let’s start with the fact that I am the only one within a raw family. They all stand back and observe and think that I am a bit nuts. Well, that is nothing new to most of us. Been there, done that, right?
Over the holidays, Dera Grandparents bought us a Dear Fishy (betta). Being Dear Mommy, I wassaddened to see Dear Fishy swimming sideways in the bowl. Another one to flush? Oh no! As a last resort I figured that I would google “betta fish swimming sideways.” Little did I know that I opened up upon a most intersting topic. Dear Fishy was constipated, thus effecting his swim bladder and causing the sideways swimming thing.
Being Dear Mommy, I followed the directions to a T. Boil (yes COOK!) a single green pea, remove the skin and skick a pice on the end of a toothpick and dange it around (live bait) to encourage Dear Fishy to eat it. Then, it promisedwithin minutes the dear Fishy will be fixed.
Well, as I was dangling my toothpick and sharing words of encouragement, dear Family came home to Crazy/Dear Mommy. Although I readily shared the dilemma (my kids are too old to become weapy-eyed over this) and my “fix” I was greated by concerned stares….THEY CLAIMED THAT I WAS ATTEMPTING A MASTER CLEANSE ON THE FISH!
Yes all, Dear Mommy is so raw/health crazed that she is now cleansing the Dear Fishy. If they put me away, do you think that I will still have internet access???
Hope I made you smile (BTW, 5 minutes later, Dear Fish pooped and swam like a champ!)
