It’s hard losing a friend, and yesterday I lost one. Well, he was a friend despite his small size, weird colors and affinity for getting sucked into his filter just for kicks. Yes, Struggles II, the Office Fish has died. And I’m here eating all my feelings… over a fish.

Seriously, I must need help. But this was no ordinary $3 pet store beta…

This fish was an anger ball, and he had favorites in the office. Obviously I was top of his favorites list – being the feeder, keeper, cleaner of the tank. I was that worriesome fish mom who would freak out when he would casually wrap himself around the intake of his tank filter just because he liked to relax and feel the water swoosh through his fins and gills.

And  I was the transporter of him on extended weekends in a traveling cup. Yup, you saw that right – he was a traveling fish making countless trips over his three years to the Palouse for long weekend holidays, Boise for weekends of horseback riding and thunderstorms (well, I did the riding…) and to the coast to see the waves from which he came.

But yesterday, it was his last day. And he will be missed.  He was given an appropriate send off fitting of a fish of his stature. (I also can’t believe I just said those words.) His final destination was the rainbow pond beyond and Struggles was sent off in a Toby Keith fashion – in a red solo cup.

Good by little friend, and see you beyond the rainbow bridge!

RIP Struggles II – Sometime 2011 – 7/29/2014.


This recipe comes from Susan Whetzel and her totally obsess-over-worthy S’mores Cookbook!! I mean, c’mon! This was the perfect thing to eat my feelings to after the loss of my fish friend. And lately Ben and I have been downing faux-s’mores like there is no tomorrow.

We make due with s’mores fixings and a creme brulee blow torch for our s’mores on our nightly desserts. But this – is face plant worthy!! Get it!

    We made a similar recipe to this a few weeks ago, but I have a sweetened condensed milk obsessed kid in the house, so we’ll have to make this one too.

    Forget the crackers, I’ll eat this with a spoon! On a more serious note though, I once had a fish that lasted about 2 years and ended up having a baby. When Baby died, I lost it! I can’t say I transported him anywhere (I’m impressed!) but I felt terrible when he was gone.

    RIP Struggles II! Pet deaths are always hard, no matter the animal. It makes me smile to this of such a little fish getting so much love and care over the last few years – you are the best mama!

    Okay, now let’s get back to that chocolate with marshmallows and graham crackers…. GIMMIE! 🙂
