When I was a little girl I had a pet goldfish. It lived in a small glass bowl, the kind you get in a five and dime. It had gravel on the bottom and a tall plastic plant inside it. The bowl was on a shelf that bordered the living room and dining room. I remember feeding the tiny fish every single day. It just took a sprinkle of food in the top of the bowl. I used to enjoy seeing the little fella come to the surface to gobble it up. But at my tender age I was a tad bit curious. I wanted to know what fish food tasted like, so I also remember trying a spoonful. It wasn't too bad, as I recall. This was my first exposure to having a pet and I LOVED it. The only problem was the fish didn't like captivity. It refused to stay in the bowl. It kept jumping out and landing on the floor with a big wet splat. Needless to say the goldfish didn't survive these antics. So... we were always replacing it, with a new one. After a while this got ridiculous and my parents decided a dog was a better bet. At the time... I thought so too. Though, I admit to growing up and owning an aquarium at one point in my life with exotic fish. Do you like fish as pets or do you prefer to eat them for dinner?
