So remember how I said we were going to by some fruit flies for Newt today? Yeah. Well, we did. Liel and I stopped to stare longingly at my new favorite fish (Ranchus- they are soooo chubby I could just squeeze them!) and Robert and Zion got the fruit flies. When Liel saw them at the check out counter she wanted to join in, too, so we hurried over in time for me to hear the girl working at the register say, "OK, so your total is $19.67".
"Holy shit", I blurted out, staring at the tube of tiny, yucky flies as Robert handed over his credit card. "Did we just pay $20 for fruit flies??"
"Yes", said Robert. "We don't need a bag", he added to the employee. "They can keep reproducing in the tube for like 6 weeks."
"Wow. Um, I think maybe we'd better lobby for Newt to be released into the wild after 6 weeks. $20 for fruit flies??"
Those better be magical fruit flies, that's all I'm sayin'.
