You know that feeling, when you live in the city that you kinda live in each others lives? Let me explain. Since the building across the street has been built and become occupied, I have spent many happy hours trying to work out who is who and what is going on over there! Oh come on everyone wants to know what the neighbours are up to right?!
Occasionally this habit offers up some little surprises, like the dark naked man playing with his dog (real dog) late one night, or the Asian couple having sex!
Oops I’ve said too much.
But I often wonder if they’re watching us too? When our beautiful neighbours lived next door, who we used to play tricks on, we discussed whether we were going to get window coverings once the building was up… J decided that nope, he was gonna parade around naked for a few days and then let the new across the street neighbours decide if they wanted to cover that shit up!
And basically we’ve taken the same approach, although the King did get timber venetian blinds while I was away one summer, it’s is purely aesthetic for the inside of our apartment and not to stop the neighbours watching us of course 😉
But this fish bowl is not that kind. It’s of a variety that is seldom seen unless you live with someone like the King, which I do, so please remember me in your nightly prayers, thanks…
It all started 2 Christmases ago, when searching for the perfect gift, he came across flying fish…. because amazon sells EVERYthing. Naturally he purchased this as the perfect gift for a friend and decided perhaps we needed one too. Well when Christmas arrived and we unwrapped it, it became entirely obvious that the King, bless his heart, hadn’t read any of the instructions and we required helium… so this fish was relegated to the closet, never to be seen again…. Until last week’s Spring cleaning frenzy. At which point the King decided this really would be fun and ordered up the helium from, yep you guessed it Amazon. (they really should start paying me commission, just sayin’)
Well you may or may not have already seen the results of the arrival of the helium into this house… you can watch that here, I’ll wait…..but the real fun was making the fish…
after about an hours work……
A fishy and we shall call him Sid Fishious and we shall love him …..And now he swims around our apartment at will, with the windows open or by remote if we choose. We live in a fish bowl.
Proof that we live in a real fish bowl and my life is crazier than yours… but should you want one of these, you can buy it here and live in your very own fish bowl.
Yesterday he just floated by to say hi… He’ll float around until the helium leaks out and them we’ll fill him again.
