Dreading the idea of even more mouths to feed, a mother strikes a sneaky deal with her pet-loving kids, only to have her plan backfire. Please enjoy this truly adorable post about a standard childhood lesson - the famously brief life span of goldfish:
"But wait. You guys need to listen very carefully. These fish don’t live very long. They will all die pretty soon. And I don’t want you to go crying about it. It’s just the way it is. So you can only get them if you promise me you won’t freak out when they die. How long? Oh, I don’t know…about three days. Why? Because that’s how God made them. That’s why they’re only ten cents."
