A is for Artificial

A is for Artificial.
- made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally, typically as a copy of something natural. (synthetic, fake, imitation, substitute, replica, man-made, manufactured, fabricated)
plastic, pretend, phony
- (of a person or a person's behavior) insincere or affected (false, unnatural, put-on, exaggerated, forced, strained, bogus)

Or... in this case "arti-fish-al"

Once we had Orville the trick fish (he could do the dead-fish-float) but he eventually went belly up for the last time and was sent "swimming" down the porcelain express. Our cats rather like the large watering dish that has graced the bookcase, so rather than ditch the fish bowl, "Arty" moved in.

For more ABC Wednesday go here.

    1. Arty is a well behave fish, but not near as tricky as Orville.
      Yes, a beautiful song (in spite of my typos).

    1. He does, doesn't he?
      He'd have more reason for concern if he was a bird... or if he wasn't so nicely submerged in a bowl of cold water.
