bits instead of bites
Earlier today I was in Inverness visiting Pop. He is doing well, just in case anyone is wondering. I visited a Pet Smart store in Ocala in search of the elusive Betta Bites fish food pellets. Before I left for Ocala, I called the Pet Smart there to ask if they had it. They said yes - but when I got there it wasn't the right kind. They had flakes, not pellets.
So I bought this alternative food called Betta Bits, which is a pellet-style betta fish food. Hopefully Bob will like them. If not, I wasted three bucks. Again.
Note: I notice that betta fish prefer pellets over flakes. They seem to really take to it much better. Betta Bites pellets, above all other betta food, is the best. No question.
I was about 700 miles overdue for an oil change, so I did that today in Inverness. This time I went whole hog, got the fourteen-point thing (includes new air filter, interior vacuuming, and a whole host of other fluid checks/refills), plus a tire rotation. Pop paid for it. That is my birthday present this year. And this is O.K. because I really needed to get it done.
ho! ha ha! guard! turn! parry! dodge! spin! ha! thrust!
If that lil' title above sounds familiar to you - it should. But I digress.
I usually listen to 105.1 FM on my way back from Inverness to Tampa. It is a long drive, after all. I left at a little after 3pm and knew I would most likely get into Tampa just before the town crumbled unto itself from..
THE EVENING COMMUTE.
(insert dramatic music here.. bah-bum bum bummmmm!!!)
The first traffic report I heard on the radio was like this:
I-275 a little bit screwed up. I-4 somewhat screwed up. Accident on Dale Mabry highway causing a general ruckus. BACK TO THE MUSIC..
A little while later..
I-275 generally screwed up. I-4 starting to get really screwed up. That accident on Dale Mabry? It's now causing a state of panic. BACK TO THE MUSIC..
I-275 is in flames. I-4 has been destroyed. The accident on Dale Mabry was due to space aliens who are beaming up the women and turning them into sex slaves - causing a backup in traffic. Men were reported to be ticked off until the aliens said they would return the women later on this evening. OKAY, BACK TO THE MUSIC...
I was fortunately able to just get by all this before I got caught in the parking lot which is I-275 at the moment I write this.
But it would have been cool to see the space aliens.
