On Saturday, before the birthday party, we went to Petco and got 2 new frogs and a shrimp for my school fish tank. We dropped them off in my classroom before going off into our hectic weekend.
Fast forward to this morning at school. I came in and discovered my shrimp had died at some point between Saturday and Monday. I scooped him out of the tank and put his lifeless carcass into a plastic bag. I knew Petco had a 15-day guarentee, but I wasn't sure if proof of death was required.
When I came home today, I showed Aidan and Gabrielle my poor shrimp. Gabrielle had a priceless reaction. She gasped, put her chubby little hands on her cheeks and shouted, "Oh no, Mommy! Your sheemp died!"
I took it back tonight and got a replacement "sheemp" -- hopefully this one won't go to the fish tank in the sky any time soon.
