I was so surprised when my boss, well, since Friday my former boss, gave me a gorgeous royal blue Betta fish. His name is Shakespeare, but he seems to like it when I call him Shakes, so Shakes it is. I placed his new home on a shelf over my kitchen sink and he looks pretty happy. So, thanks, former-boss-now-just-friend Linda, for adding to my animal menagerie, even if he is a man. I'm sure Abby, Roxy, and I will learn to live with that fact!
