Unintended irony is the most poetic sort...

Sunday, I discovered that my fish, Sushi, had died. It wasn't until tonight, when I spotted them in the garbage can, that I realized the irony of having used a pair of chopsticks to remove a fish named Sushi from his tank.

I got Sushi from the Mogils a little over two years ago, and he outlived the six snails who've joined him in his tank, one that winter (a gift from sajego) and the other five the following spring.

hierosheeki wanted me to wait until she was in town for a memorial service. I hope she won't mind that I didn't wait for the proper burial.
