So tonight is Christmas Eve at my house and my moms side of the family comes over...
I have several younger cousins ranging from 10, to 3...
Each of them is a ADHD nut job (I swear they should be on Super Nanny) because if they don't get their way they'll destroy something or have a tantrum (Talking about the younger ones... the 10yr old is more sneaky).
Not saying they're bad kids... just... annoying and you shouldn't put them in a room alone with fine china for too long or else... *Crash*
They've found out I have a fish... (Their mom (My First cousin and always sorta been my older sister (Sorta, I mean I call her 'Sis') is a friend on FaceBook of mine.) And I KNOW 'Sis' to give herself a moment with 'Twix'... kidding to give herself a breather, she'll say "HEY! Why don't you go upstairs with your older cousin and he'll show you his new fish tank!"
These kids have VERY SHORT FUSES, Sticky Fingers for touching things... and once they see the tank I know they'll want to linger... trying to outwait me so they can fool around with the tank (I'm an artist I have alot of... probably horrible things in my room which could be picked up and dropped in the tank and instantly kill Drax. Like oooh dirty brushes, oils, charcoal, canvas, paintthinner, rocks, wires...)
These kids killed snails... when they had them as pets.
And Hermit Crabs... (Shell cracking cuz the brats were curious).
(Also not all of them are 'Sis's kids just... hers are the older more sneaky ones).
Should I just lock my bedroom door from the inside (I know how to pick the lock from the outside) and pretend I don't even have a fish... or explain to them VERY STERNLY...
"Now children... I just cleaned the tank glass... *Turns on light and shows small case of talcum* When you leave if I find prints... *Evil smirk* I'm taking one of your gifts... and touching it myself *Wields sludge hammer* MWAHAHAHAHAHA!"
What? I'm protective of whats mine! I'm like a dragon... I hoard things and don't like people touching them! He's my fish and I don't want little kids within 10ft of the tank...
