When we first moved to back to the US two years ago, I got a 10-gallon fish tank and bought several fancy goldfish. They became huge mutants that outgrew the tank. After we released them into my parent's pond (which is in New Jersey, so freaky mutations won't really be noticed), we bought five, normal-looking platys.
But now... now one of them has become a zombie.
Seriously, the fish lies on the gravel like it's waiting for a side of chips. I go in with the net, and it jumps up and swims away. This has been going on for more than a week, and it keeps fooling me every morning.
Ooh--maybe the kids taught it to play dead!
BTW, Ruby's Reads has a week devoted to Paranormal Schools, and she's reviewing Minder on Tuesday. Check it out!
