Goodbye, Matt! We hardly knew ye…

June 1st, 2010 - August 23rd, 2010

I regret to inform you of the passing of Matt the Beta Fish.

While his birthday was unknown and he was a very private fish, he came to my desktop on June 1st of this year.  For the next 84 days, we shared a desk together at Destination Marketing, a marketing and advertising agency in Mountlake Terrace, Washington.

We often talked.  Actually, to Matt’s credit, he was an excellent listener.  I guess I can take comfort in knowing that all of the secrets I shared with him about my co-workers have gone with him.

One day, he disappeared on me and I couldn’t figure out where he had gone, the little Dickens had actually swam into the filter area.  I read on line that Beta’s like to rest on things or hide, so I went to Petco and bought him a little house.  Of course, you know what’s going on with the housing industry and perhaps the stress and strain were just too much.

We only had a short time together.  I never was able to do things like take him on a trip or teach him tricks.  I will miss him greatly, until I can find time to go to the store and buy another one.

Great knowing you, Matt.
