Meet Frank Bates

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 19 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Well, I decided that I needed someone who would always agree with me and never talk back. So I got a fish. His name is Frank Bates. I call him Frank…other’s call him Mr. Bates (just say it out loud). He’s a Betta fish (with two “t”s) which is good because for many reasons:

  • Only need to feed them 2-3 times a week so I can go away for the weekend without having to worry
  • Don’t need a filter or air bubble thing
  • Are used to living alone and in very small spaces
  • Don’t need to change the water often

It only cost $16.45 + tax and I have enough food to last quite a long time.
