While Jenny is busy creating real people life, we have ventured into the land of Sea Monkeys! I am having an ethical dilemma regarding the little critters. First of all, as evidenced by my fails to even grow bean sprouts and carrot tops, I'm a little shaky in the life sustaining department. And then, my son was given a Sea Monkey "kit" for his birthday.
Some people are very serious about their Sea- Monkeys. (Who ARE these people? If you are one of those people, I take it back, YOU are awesome) Mine look a little bit like swimming feathery maggots.
Apparently they are AMAZING! INSTANT LIFE!
Some people buy toys for their mini crustaceans...
Some people take their Sea-Monkeys on walks...?
I know I'm on the verge of bad karma because I keep thinking...when we visit family we have someone take care of our cat. Do we SERIOUSLY have to pay someone to feed the Sea Monkeys? And I already know I'm a negligent "hobbyist" because I don't properly aerate their water supply or keep packets of SeaMonkey Medic on hand if they get sick.
Do I take them along on trips? Do I give them extra food and hope for the best? Do I ask someone to look after them? And really...why am I stressed about this? Hubby says "Flush them." At least my karma is better than his.
