A young boy from Bonaire, Georgia in the United States loved his pet goldfish so much that he couldn’t contain himself from showing his affection to it. Pet owners usually hug and cuddle their dogs and cats to show how much they love them, so the four-year-old boy probably thought he wanted to do the same to his fish.
Unfortunately, Everett Hamlin is still too young to understand that fish are not exactly the same as other pets because they need water to survive. So when the innocent boy took his pet goldfish out of the tank to cuddle with it — it’s safe to say we all know what happened next.
Everett used a chair to climb up to the tank because he wanted to pet Nemo. He managed to catch him and took him to bed for a cuddle.
When mom Tori went in to check on her son, she noticed that the goldfish was missing from its tank. She then eventually saw Everett clutching Nemo in his bed, and as expected, it wasn’t breathing anymore.
Tori woke Everett up to tell him what had happened, and the young boy was totally devastated because all he wanted to do was to pet his best friend.
“He loved the goldfish. It’s always been in his bedroom. He loved looking at it. He’s never tried to get it before it happened that night.
I explained it to him again, and he said, ‘that’s alright. We’ll have to get another fish, and I won’t touch it. I’m only allowed to touch fish when I go fishing.’ I said, ‘yep, that’s right.’”
Tori shared that part of parenting and growing up is making mistakes anf learning from them.
Tori and her husband Corey bought the fish for Everett when he was just a few months old.
The 29-year-old mom shared that they will get him a new fish. And this time, he could pick out his new pal.

Angry Man Cuts LV Bag Open After Store Staff Judged Him Based On His Clothes
I get a “Pretty Woman” vibe in this one.
The saying “dress to impress” is well-known all around the globe. But what does it really mean? This is one of those dress codes that leaves way too much room for interpretation and, honestly, isn't fair to everyone as what’s impressive for me might not be impressive for you. Additionally, some just can’t be bothered to impress other people.
Just take this one man in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for example. He is certainly not one of those flashy rich people and is more of a casual kind of guy, and it seemed that the Louis Vuitton store staff are not too impressed with his style.

Netizens are now calling her the “iceberg queen.”
A Texas grandmother lived out her dreams of royalty when she climbed atop a throne-shaped iceberg during a trip to Diamond Beach, Jokulsarlon, Iceland. She even got to be the queen of the oceans for a short time when the iceberg she sat on to pose for a picture drifted off to open water.
Judith Streng was on holiday with her son when she saw the ice chunk and wanted to strike some pose on it. But her icy throne was then swept away from the shore by a big wave, causing the 77-year-old grandma to drift out at sea and had to be rescued.
