“The aquarium is boring.”
My wife Lynne told me this weekend that she was tired of the fish tank. “There’s no color in it.”
She was right. When we first got it, I maintained it regularly and kept it interesting. The last couple years, though, I barely remembered it was there. And, yes, it got boring.
So this weekend, I set out to the fish store to find some non-boring colorful creatures to bring home.
And then I saw them. The brightest, most colorful fish ever! GloFish!
When the young woman working the fish department told me “they’re genetically modified,” I wasn’t sure what to think about that. And then I stopped thinking and bought them.
So… my aquarium is a lot more colorful. And I’m wondering if I’ve supported something I shouldn’t have.
So far, I’ve resisted the urge to go looking around the net to find out the whole story. I’m gonna stay ignorant for a bit and enjoy my pretty, mad-scientist-created fish.
