A bitter-sweet victory and tribute

You might remember back in the summer when I posted about the contest. Back in June, my little sister, our friend Laura, and I all bought male betta fish from Walmart. Whoever kept their guy alive the longest was the winner. I won this week. Myrna passed late in the summer and Machiavelli just last week. Great fish. Will be missed. Mauberley is still swimmin'. But for how long?

love the video.

my first fish (a goldfish from walmart) lasted 36 hours. my longest-living beta lasted almost 18 months.
