what is it about lobsters?
part insect, part fish.
They are quite funny creatures.

Once the fish-selling guy at my local Acme grocery store convinced me to buy one for my husband for his Father's Day Dinner. Thing is, once I got the thing home, I had to put it in a pot of boiling water. and that seemed just so cruel.
I thought about putting a pretty ribbon on it's neck, getting an aquarium, and giving the ole guy as a pet instead.
But finally I found some courage (or sadism.)
did the dirty deed.
boiled up the water and cooked the thing for a special dinner.
But I felt very bad about it.
I have not eaten lobster since.
Maybe this page emerged out of the pain in my soul for torturing an innocent animal.
I am not a vegetarian, but I try to honor the living things that give their lives so I can be fed. . . .
