okay so I used to have this beta fish named Leonard Cohen who lived in a bowl on my desk

he was the only pet I had in my 20s

I switched jobs and took him with me and then like a month into my new job he died, and I MELTED DOWN 1/3
@GraceSpelman my mom was dying and I was like super over-attached to this fish and it was like a whole thing

so my really nice coworkers were like “do you want to have a funeral for the fish”

and I said yes, all sobbing and sniffling like a wreck

so we all trooped into the restroom 2/
@GraceSpelman and we crammed into the handicapped stall and my boss gently dumped the fish in the toilet and was like “would you like me to say a few words” and I said yes and she was like “here lies Leonard Cohen, he was a good fish who brought joy into a lot of lives....” 3/4
@GraceSpelman so I’m like sobbing into my coworkers shoulders as all 4 of them go around in a circle and one by one they each say something nice about my dead fish

and then suddenly we hear a voice from the next stall go “what the FUCK is going on????”
