As you may or may not have read, earlier this week we thought that Laura’s Betta fish died.
The little faker was taking a pebble nap under the pump in her tank.
After we’d prepared a funeral service befitting a head of state, Lavender woke up, waved her purple fin at us, and yelled, “Psych!”
Lavender’s nickname is now Lazarus.
Dr. Kevorkian Tom suggested that since Lavender hadn’t been looking very energetic and we did have the bathroom all set up for a burial at sea, maybe we should go ahead and, you know . . .
The next morning we found this in her tank:
And the day after that we got a letter from Lavender’s agent. Apparently, she’s been involved in contract negotiations with Sea World.
It seems that Lavender’s agent has specified that considering her death-defying abilities, she will not take a co-starring role.
When we know the opening date of her one-fish show, we’ll let you know.
