I love my boyfriend Jet with all my heart… he is strong, handsome, protective, a little silly… and a good housekeeper… clean is always a good quality in a man.

Anywho… we pretty much see eye to eye basically everything… except pets

Now, I am not a pet person…. I don’t hate them… I just don’t want any of them.. they are too much responsibility.. and I tend to forget to feed them… and water them…. wait.. do you water pets? … anyway… Jet is a pet lover… he loves all animals… big and small…. if he wasn’t into weight training and needed the protein he wouldn’t eat meat at all.   Now this story starts back a ways…. when we first moved in together Jet wanted a dog… I firmly said no dogs and no cats… period… so he decided to get fish… those goldfish you can get at the flea markets… well he started with 8 of them… Jet never does anything in a small way… he has a big personality… and when he does something he goes big… so 8 fish… I eyed the things…. and I said.. are you sure you are supposed to put 8 gold-fish in that small bowl…. he said.. I know nothing about animals so stay out of it…. I was like .. fine, fine… you do your fish….

He started with the water… he felt tap water wasn’t good for his precious babies.. so he wanted to go to the river.. and get them fresh river water… I told him … I dot think Chinese river water is fresh… he just gave me a dirty look.   so he went to get his fresh river water…. and returned with a bucket full of water.   He poured the water into the bowl and the fish disappeared….yep water was too dirty to see the fish…. so he cussed and changed the water again to the tap water.   Unfortunately,  the fish died after a few days…. however he wasn’t giving up…he bought more fish and tried it again…. this time I noticed a black on in the group… I said… what is up with the black fish… he said that’s “Jo”…. I just looked at him and walked away…

Several days later.. I woke up and noticed that “Jo” was missing… i said.. what happened to the black fish…he said.. I sorry Jo died…I said.. I died… what the hell?….. he just laughed… after another few days..I noticed there was only one fish left…I just giggled to myself…..

So the time came where Jet had to leave for a few days…. and my job was to baby sit.. that one fish…. I told him I didn’t feel comfortable watch it… he said… it’s a fish… just feed it… I was like whatever….

Well his few days… turned to a week… and I had forgotten all about that damn fish… when he came back…. he went straight to check on it…. of course it was floating on top of the water…. I said.. maybe its sleeping….he looked at me… and shook his head….

So we are done with fish… it seems….. however… I came home the other day… and he was too excited…. I said.. what?…..and said come see….. I thought oh lord……what is it….

I looked over in the bucket…and I saw the ugly things….. river Crabs…..staring back at me…8 of them… about as big as the palm of my hand……disgusting ugly little things…..I screamed…… what the hell?!!!!

Until Next time……

Some of you guys have been studying and practicing Chinese.  My friends over at Nin are having a challenge.. check it out it sounds like fun.
We’re launching a friendly and competitive event next week over the knowledge of Chinese: a Ninchallenge Tournament! Would you be interested in sharing this news with your readers and followers?

The Ninchallenge Tournament will be a two-week long tournament where Chinese learners play battles – called Ninchallenges – against other Chinese learners over their knowledge of Chinese vocabulary.  Through the Ninchallenge Tournament, our goal is to offer Chinese learners a fun atmosphere in which:
– they can practice their Chinese vocabulary
– discover new words
– play with other Chinese learners
– demonstrate their Chinese skills and win cool prizes.

This is the very first Ninchallenge Tournament we at Ninchanese organize. We’re launching it to support our Kickstarter campaign( which is currently live here: http://ninchanese.com/kickstarter). We want the Tournament to be entirely about having fun practicing Chinese this summer. The Tournament is free and open to all Chinese learners worldwide.

Registration is now open:  Those interested in joining the tournament can start signing up on ninchanese.com/ninchallenge. The Ninchallenge tournament starts on the 13th and will run until the 26th of July.

until next time……
