Default Sea Monkey

Ok this made me feel VERY OLD......

My niece and I were talking about her wanting a pet; she has wanted one for a while now and, as dutiful aunt has been eager for her to keep nagging her mom for one (For similar reasons that I try to get the nosiest toys or things with a LOT of glitter or messy paints )


She then tells me that she wants’ sea monkeys?? WTF I had to blag it until I could look on Google as to what she was talking about so as not to appear "uncool"....... I must be getting old ... What happened to just wanting a rabbit?

The sea monkeys i had were scary! Actually i think they were called triops but very similar to sea monkeys, didn't realise they were a 'cool' pet to have this day and age. :S

Well you also had to be a bit of a boy i guess to read those Marvel & DC Comics of the day.

Did you never see the episode of South Park when Cartman was set on getting some...and his dissapointment when he did? Well worth watching to give you an insight into what your neice will go thru
