Killing Two Fish With One Stone
Yesterday a friend of mine called me. Our conversation went as follows:
Friend: So what have you been up to this weekend?
THB: Well, I went to the mechanic to get my car's oil changed and my tires rotated. So I got some nice fish!
THB: Yeah, my mechanic and I are both really into African cichlids. I'm setting up a new aquarium, so he told me that anytime I go in to get my oil changed, if I let him know in advance he can bring me some cichlid babies from his tank at home to populate my tank. He even gave me some of his bacteria! Isn't that nice?
Friend: Hmm..sounds dreamy. Lemme tell ya, there's nothing like hearing a man say, "Here, I'll give you some of my bacteria," to make ME swoon!
THB: Yeah, isn't he nice? I'll keep you posted on the progress of my aquarium cycle.
Friend: (sarcastically) Yeah, you do that. #
