Daughter went to school, but Mama had to go get her. Still sick, and the school nurse called for me to come and get her when the congestion crud began triggering the neuro crud. I called the neuro’s office, who told me to call the ped. Ped said call the neuro. Lovely.
So I get home with my daughter who bore more than a passing resemblance to a dishrag at this point. Fed her, and got back to feeding the dog, which is what I had been in the middle of when the nurse called. Now it’s time to feed the fish. Here comes the cool part.
We got to see the candy cane coral eat. When it’s happy, there’s a teeny tiny hole in the center of each head, that’s equivalent to a mouth. I put a little piece of brine shrimp on top of one of the heads and it stuck there. Then the teeny tiny hole began expanding, and the head started narrowing, pushing the piece of shrimp closer to the now yawning mouth. In it went, a bit at a time. WOW! Once it was all in, the mouth closed again, and is now back to a barely noticable hole in the center of the head. No doubt, this was better than anything that would have been on the agenda for 2nd grade science.
