Our New Pets
That's right folks. We are the proud owners of two goldfish. Darby and Tutu. They reside in Halle's room. And to say she loves them is probably a gross understatement. She talks to these fish like they are people. "Look at my hair"...."Good night fishies"....."See you in the morning". You may be wondering where we came up with such clever names. Well....Hal and I were having a conversation about naming them on the way home for the pet store. She wanted to name one "Dorothy"...like Elmo's fish. I wasn't so keen on that. But, I did start thinking about "The Wizard of Oz"....and Dorothy and Toto. But, then my brain went into overdrive. One of Halle's most favorite Veggie Tale's DVD's is "The Wizard of Ha's". Which, as I'm sure you've guessed, is a spoof on "The Wizard of Oz". AHA. The little boy in the movie is "Darby" and his companion, not a dog, but...a Pig....named, that's right folks, "Tutu". Perfect. Just like the pink and purple rocks with the matching plant. Sigh. You can't win them all, right?
