Help! The fish died… Flush it then…

Today I happened to walk passed the fish tank and notice that our spotty Molly (who keeps giving us lots and lots of baby Mollies… but that’s a different story) was floating at the top of the tank.

(not actual fish)

Luckily Roo and Tigger were eating their tea, so what do I do? I ring Mr Boo at work obviously…

Me: ‘Help! the fish is dead!’
Mr Boo: ‘Well flush it down the loo’
Me: ‘What? I can’t even look at it, never mind flush it!’
Mr Boo: ‘Man up, get the net and flush it’
Me: ‘OK, I can do this, speak to you later’

Off I go with new found courage (thank you Mr Boo), I managed to fish it out (mind the pun), place it in the toilet and flush… OMG it didn’t go away!!!

I’m back on the phone…

Me: ‘It didn’t go!!! What I am supposed to do now???’
Mr Boo: ‘Flush again’
Me: ‘Are you sure that will work?’
Mr Boo: ‘Put a load of toilet paper in there and it will go’
Me: ‘Oh, OK, didn’t think of that, bye’

Back to the bathroom… In goes the toilet paper, flush… IT’S STILL THERE!!!  It took 4 flushes, that’s right 4 FLUSHES to get rid of it…

Next time I’m putting a towel over the tank, telling the kiddies that the fish are sleeping and waiting for Mr Boo to come home

    Oh dear poor fish, but you’ve made me think back to when I was younger and one of our fish died (though I don’t remember being that bothered), it was buried in the garden in the box I had my Bionic Woman doll in 🙂
