Strange Bedfellow

I'm going to be sharing a room with an 8 inch fish that looks a lot like this one. He has more color and prettier markings than the one in the picture. I feed him 3 times a day when I'm there and just found out that these fish (Red Tiger Oscars) actually like to be touched. I don't think this fish is gonna get that lucky. He doesn't even have a name. My brother left him at my mom's house and he would be in the spare bedroom if there was any way that I could move his freaking enormous tank by myself. It takes up most of one of my walls. It looks like we're gonna be roommates for a while. He's quiet, but he poops a lot and the massive pump for the massive tank is really loud and the sound of running water makes me have to get up to go pee in the middle of the night (a first for me). My mom forgets to feed him, so he practically jumps out of his tank when I show up because he knows he's gonna get some proper grub. I swear he's looking at me when I take my clothes off so I always turn my back to him. Yeah, seriously. It's a fish. A no-name fish who gives me the eye.

My dog watches me change sometimes. Can be strange when an animal gives you the eye...

I hate those fish. There is something SO evil about them.

I like him. Is he the only one in that tank? Maybe he's giving you the eye because he's hungry for some company. A little fish lovin'.
