The world arrived in the mail. It was marked “Fragile.” A picture of a cracked goblet was on the package. I unwrapped it carefully, dreading the discovery of a shard of glass or the tinkle of broken crystal. But it was intact. With both hands, I lifted it out and held it up to the sunlight. It was a transparent sphere, about half filled with water…
We have enjoyed ‘Shrimpy’ since the children were little, but I recently found the shipping letter and realized we have had him since 2002!
HELLO!! I just thought I’d let you know that in December, my oval eco-sphere will be 10 years old!! (As of today) I still have 3 left. I call them Larry, Curly, and Moe. (We even still have the box they were shipped in.) My hubby Steve bought them as a Christmas gift and I’ve had lots of joy watching them over the years. Many conversations about them have been had as well! Hope business has been great!
David (EcoSphere Customer): “Hello, can you tell me when my ecosphere was started? #545881. Thank you
EcoSphere: “Hello David. According to our records, that serial number is from June 2012. Does that sound about right?”
David: “Yes, thank you. There are still 2 of the original 4 shrimps alive.”
EcoSphere: “Do you shrimp have names?”
David: “Only Paul and Ringo remain. John and George have left us.”
