So Layla and I made a trip to Pet Smart today where we bought Dory's (29 cent) replacement. I was informed that this one didn't come with a warranty.
As I walked out of the store, fish in hand, I had a flashback. When I was two I won a fish at a carnival that I named Allison. Allison lived for seven years. It had never dawned on me before that maybe my parents had pulled the same stunt I was now pulling on my two year old.
I called and asked both my parents. They both claim Allison was never replaced.
My family was taking odds on whether Mason would realize it was a different Dory. He didn't.
