In which her fish plays dead

I was sitting on the couch with Keely and Andie just talking about random shit when Andie told us something funny. If I had to describe Andie I would say that this is the quintessential Andie story because it’s pretty damn funny and yet incredibly mean and snarky.


I’ve already explained before that Andie had a pet goldfish named Gilgamesh down at school. When she came home for fall break she left the fish at Keely’s apartment and a friend of Keely’s looked after the fish for her. Now, looking after a fish isn’t that time intensive but apparently this really sweet girl is a bit wound up normally. She was quite concerned about the responsibility but she did it anyway, mostly for Keely.


When Andie went back to school, she picked up her fish and went to her own apartment. She then sent a text to Katie (the girl taking care of the fish).



Andie’s text:


Well, as you can imagine, Katie completely lost her shit and called Keely hysterically saying that the fish had been alive when she last saw it. She was really upset and sent Andie a text.


Katie’s text:

What? The fish is dead?

Of course, Andie being the horrible person she is waited about 10 minutes to respond and sent the following text to Katie.


Andie’s text:

Never mind. The fish was just playing dead.



Of course, I totally cracked up visualizing this going on while Keely was telling me that Katie, apparently a really sweet girl, had been so upset that she had killed Andie’s fish.


So there you are. Andie MacDonald, completely fucking with people. I must admit that I thought it was awesome. I mean, “How did you teach my fish to play dead?”


Does it even get any better than that?

    Hahahah. When I was a kid, our neighbor watched our perfectly healthy dog when we were away, and was perpetually scared she’d die on her watch. I guess its a common fear?

    Oh that was mean, poor Katie. But so damn funny! What did you do, give Andie sarcasm/humor lessons when she was a baby?

    LOVE this. I’m gonna use this, or some reasonable facsimile, on my little sister. She’s my favorite person to torture.
