Wanna Buy a Trained Guppy?
I do not know where I got my children. And now that I have them, I don't know what to do with them. They just . . . amaze me.
My daughter has a bowl full of guppies that reproduce like . . . well, like guppies. We give a bunch away from time to time, never as many as I'd like to. In an effort to raise money to buy a hairless cat, which is a blog all by itself, my daughter decided to sell some of her guppies. She spent about half an hour this morning on a price chart. You can buy a regular guppy for twenty-five cents, but you can get a trained guppy for just a little bit more. If you want a highly-trained guppy, however, that will cost you $21.00.
Now, let me just say, I'm not sure what a highly-trained guppy does, or how one would even go about training one. When I saw my daughter standing by the bowl, holding a sock in one hand and telling me that she would now proceed to train the guppies, I had to flee the room lest my maniacal laughter injure her self-esteem.
