As I was walking down the street today heading to a bank for a transaction, I read a banner by the side of the road. It was announcing a sale of aquariums in a store just a few meters from it.
For a moment, I stopped on my tracks. I was contemplating whether I should go to that store and check out the aquariums. You see, I can only count 2 animals that I would really consider having as a pet. And one of that is the pretty fish 🙂
I grew up with the presence of fishes and an aquarium in the house. It wasn’t always the same aquarium since my parents would then buy a newer one and give away the older aquarium to some neighbor or friend. But I’ve always enjoyed feeding the fishes as well as cleaning the aquarium.
I left home when I was 18 for university studies in another city. But that was just the beginning. I have since moved to quite a number of houses, places (including to another country and back) and only got settled really when I married at 37. And now, I am reminded to get my own aquarium 🙂 Perhaps it’s time to get a pet again.
