Background:

A little while back, my girlfriend and I left to go to the movies.  On our way to the movie theater, we checked Fandango to see if there were any good movies playing.  It turned out, the only movie we wanted to see had a 10 pm showing and nothing else. (It was 3 pm at the time) So we decided to go back to her house.  On the way, we passed Petsmart.  Naturally, we decided to go in to see the puppies.  While walking through the door, I jokingly said: “let’s buy a fish.”

She loved the idea. We started walking around and she saw the hamsters first.

“Let’s get one,” she said. I think she was joking though.

“Alright!”

“Really?” she asked

“Yeah, why not.”

“Alright let’s do it!”

So we got one.

His name is Winston.
