Not a Heartless Biatch

You have no compassion whatsoever!

Those are the words that my hubby uttered this morning. Words that are screaming at me in my head.

I may seem like one but really, I am not.

You see, I got him baby red ear slider turtles as a housewarming gift. This morning, when we woke up, KC (the female) had white foam in her mouth. Jer was panicking while I calmly went back inside to turn Koryu on. I was going to look it up online but he thought I just didn't care. I even looked up vet clinics nearby and tried to call them (they were all out of business and those that were open don't treat turtles).

I am not heartless. I just prefer to distance myself so that I won't be too affected when something like this happens. Call it a defense mechanism if you wish but don't call me a heartless b#tch.

  1. Hey, you're not a heartless biatch.

    Maybe you just know how to protect yourself from any eventuality. You may call it defense mechanism. Whatever it may be, it just softens any impact.

  3. I always freak out when one of my pets gets hurt or sick. I envy your ability to keep a cool head, and agree he probably didn't mean it - was just freaking.

  5. Thanks, Ash and Kaye. KC (the turtle) has not gotten worse today. I hope she'll get over it.
