She cooked the fish......

Literally, she cooked the fish. Greta got a goldfish that was leftover from an anatomy lab at school and brought it home to live here.

We boiled water [we have a well] and set it off to the side to come down to room-temperature so that we could eventually transfer the fish into his new home.

Well, little Miss Emma Sage did not realize that the water had been boiled, thought she was helping and let's just say, Sir Goldfish met an untimely death.

............and boy did she cry when she realized what she had done [her crying actually broke my heart because she was sobbing and so sorry for what she had done]

Ok, that is the saddest but funniest thing I have heard in awhile. I know I'm horrible. Poor Emma Sage though, of course she was just trying to help...
