Yeeeeah, little Pinkie-Twinkie. No respect. It took quite a bit of effort to convince my daughter he was really a boy. Her little (then) four year old princess brain couldn't grasp that. "But she is pink..?" "He is a pink...*boy*." LOL. She's got it now though. When she was trying to come up with names, she ran all the usual silly little kid names by me, you know, "Pink Fish"...then randomly said, "Twinkie?" and I said, "THAT IS IT! TWINKIE! That is perfect." He looks like a Twinkie to me, it sounds like sparkly/twinkle/pink/glitter. I do draw the line at the pink ornaments she wanted to force upon him...there is a tiny pink castle and princess ornament at Petsmart she wants for him. "He is a MAN! You can't put a pink castle in his tank, he would be embarrased."
Oh, I am glad you mentioned you like Antigua. My husband said he is ugly! Ugly?! Like not even "okay", but "ugly"? I thought, "ooookay, I no longer trust your judgment..." His favorite betta is Hatzallah. He said, "Hatzie looks like a Chinese dragon bursting out of a cave." That is actually a good description. I just can't get over his disparaging remarks about Antigua though. Hmf.
Glad you guys like the comics. I feel inspired to post some more of them.
