9: the number of days my two fish survived. That has to be a new record for how quickly fish in my possession have perished. I ought to know better than to get fish ever again. I had them on several occasions during college and it never ended well for the fish. It should be illegal for me to take any more into my home. At least these two weren’t homicidal. They seemed to genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Yes, I’ve had homicidal fish.
Makes me wonder though, with my proficiency for killing aquatic, finned creatures, might I make a fine fisherman?
