More than one use for tweezers.

Since loosing my beloved tweezers on my trip to Cancun, Mr. Crookedeyebrow has lovingly purchased many new tweezers for me. I love it. He even has purchased his own pair of manly tweezermans for himself. Let me clarify this by saying, no he does not pluck his brows, he likes to collect stuff and thought they would make a great addition to his collection.

Therefore we have tweezers everywhere. Night stands, medicine cabinets, drawers, closets and quite possibly purses. Yes folks, we have a lot. You never know when the stray hair will pop out of place or when a black hair is sprouting from thy chin. They must me readily accessible.

Tweezers have so many useful purposes but none greater than last night. Mr. Crookedeyebrow's tweezers saved a life...

As I was putting JC to bed, I looked into his fishy tank like I do each and every night and said "HELLO FISHES...TIME FOR NITE-NITE". There was a quick glance and then another, the goldfish was in distress!

Mr. Goldfish looked odd, but I couldn't figure it out. He was a squirming, pooping (yes, pooping, it's what they do) and his mouth was open. Open and it never closed. Those gold fish lips were wide open with no signs of closing anytime soon. It seems that the fishy inhaled a pretty black aquarium stone and it became lodged. Yes. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

Well, Mr. Crooked eyebrow and his yellow splinter tweezermans came to the rescue. He grabbed the fishy with all the gentleness God could have possibly given him and plucked the stone out!

You see, tweezers are not only great for brows, splinters or unwanted chin hair ( not like *I* would know anything about that), but they are perfect for saving your son's goldfish too.


Who knew???

I've actually had that happen to us before!! When sucking up the aquarium rocks for food residue, the rocks do occassionally get lodged in the fishies mouths!!

And yes, Mr. Crooked Eyebrow did the right thing. Tweezers are perfect for such a situation!! He's such a smart hero!

That makes for a cute story, but when you really reflect on it, it's also REALLY amazingly cool. I'm serious. He saved a fish's life with a pair of tweezers and some quick thinking. He really IS a hero. Go Mr. CrookedEyebrow. I hope he's feeling extra good about himself today. Very cool.
