Rainbow's Double

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend (and that not too many of you ended up getting stuck at the airports).

Last week, Southern California experienced some uncharacteristically heavy rainfall. Just before the weekend, a break from the nonstop precipitation resulted in a brilliant double rainbow (all the way!). Like everyone else, I was reminded of a certain youtube phenomenon from earlier this year, but the double rainbow also stirred a childhood memory that I decided to doodle.

So here is the absolutely true story of "Rainbow's Double" (you may have to click these to read the text):











It was a successful dead-pet-swap. I didn't find out that I had owned 2 different betta fish until I was something like a senior in high school.

I actually found a photo of me and my fishy friend:


I have no idea if this is a picture of Rainbow or "Rainbow." In any case, I was really fond of my pet(s) and spent a lot of time pretending I could talk to him(them).

BAWW! great story! My parents once told me I had squished my Siamese cat when I was little. But then I found out they got rid of it because I was allergic to it. Still! Silly parents and their ways of changing stories. :)

Thanks you guys!

Otto--hahaha, it's amazing how many parents have managed to pull this off with various kinds of pets. Did she remain blissfully unaware like I did or did she suspect something?

Gabby--awww, they told you that you squished the cat??! Parents do say crazy things sometimes.
