MY FIRST PET
A tribute to iesha from the @ListPrompts
- •I won her in kindergarten
- •I named her after this song.
- •I had her for 5 years
- •She was brutally murdered by my brother while I was at little leagueHe fed her the wrong food by "mistake"
- •I stared at her empty fish tank in my room with the lights out and my lava lamp on
- •I refused to go to school for two days
- •We had a funeral that Sunday.
- •I invited the whole neighborhood, demanded everyone wear black and forced everyone to say one nice thing about her
- •She was buried in my backyard in a cigar box filled with glitter, candy and her favorite food (in case she got hungry in the afterlife)
- •I went to McDonald's after the funeral with my mom and dad and brother.
- •Came home and watched a few episodes of rugrats.
- •I now have a fish that I got this summer
- •Her name is Elaine Shwartzman
- •She's jewish
- •I rescued her from a very patriarchal pet store
- •She's wonderful
- •But she's no Iesha.
