My freshman year, I owned two snails. One(captain) died for whatever reason. The other(sluggo) escaped the vase and launched himself into the space between the wall and the heater.
Towards the end of last year, I had a small fish, a Chinese Algae Eater named Dash. Dash was a fast fish, with camoflauge, so I made sure to find him in the tank often. One time I didn't find him in the tank. I enlisted my roommate's help. She found him on the floor next to the dresser.
Last night, my newer (october, not that new) snail, Squirrel, went over the edge. Again. He had attempted a few days earlier. So twice now I have heard that clunking noise and rushed over to find him, wipe him off, and plunk him into the tank.
Why? Why do my animals attempt/commit suicide?
Also: you are in a fairly long-term relationship. Someone who knows you a bit, but hasn't really seen you often outside of class and short chats and therefore doesn't know you have a (boyfriend/girlfriend) asks you out. You say no, that you're taken. How do you feel about this?
(I feel kinda bad...)
