We were at another person's house, when Lorelei asked permission to go look at the fish one last time before we left. "Five seconds," I told her, and gave her ten. I called her to go, and she came running. Then, midway to the door, Lorelei said, "But I forgot to put it back in the water!" I thought I had saved that poor guppy in the nick of time, but then found out it had died! R.I.P. little guppy. Note to self: Teach kids not to pet fish.
Ironically, Lorelei also went fishing with Daddy today and caught her biggest, 8 inch fish. It was already dead when she caught it in her net.
