Sweepstakes
So I don't know why on earth I entered this sweeps.

And I just found out that I won. And while the prize is something very neat, I now have to spend all kinds of money to accommodate it into my life.

I've picked up aquariums as a hobby, and I have a very nice 65 gallon one, fully planted and stocked. It has everything exactly figured out to support a little eco system in there.

Yet I enter a sweepstakes and win 10 Discus Fish from the most renowned breeder.

Now, discus get big, and once they are grown and sexually mature, they get belligerent. They are most beautiful and have human like faces, they come in incredible colors, and they are by far my favorites.

I was thinking of turning them down or trying to give them away, but I can't get myself to do it, lol!

So why did I enter that sweeps even though I know darn well it will take a lot to accommodate the prize?

Well, because it was there, because I didn't think I would win, and because I enjoyed the dream of those beautiful fishes.

DUH!

Or what's worse, maybe now I have to get into breeding Discus as a business? I am just in the process of selling my business so I can retire. Every time I do that I end up starting a totally unrelated business... Shocking

5 pairs is enough to start making money.....

Oh boy, I remember that song... damn, I'm too old to start another business. I deserve to lay back and enjoy the fruit of my labor.

Well then why not just sell the 5 breeding pairs to someone looking to start a business?
