Yesterday in the car Sam and Kira were talking about Sam's pet crayfish. Sam and Kira both caught a bunch of crayfish in August in Rainy Lake. Two of Sam's are still alive and living in an aquarium in his room. They eat lunchmeat. One is named Cheesecurds and the other is named Fries. Sam used to have three of them, but one day one was gone. We still don't know where it went. I suppose it climbed out of the aquarium and got away, but we can't find it anywhere. It is probably living in the toilet, growing more and more every day until sometime in the dead of night it will emerge and kill us all. Anyhoo.... Kira had a few crayfish that she kept alive for a while, but most of them died because she left them out in the sun, and her last one, Bad Eye Guy, died in September. Sam asked how Bad Eye Guy died because he couldn't remember, and Kira got a far away stare on her face and said in a sing-song voice, "Bad Eye Guy died... he died a long time ago..." She scares me sometimes.
