Some sad news to report, there has been a death in the family.
My blue lobster, Jack, has gone to lobster heaven. For those wondering, lobster heaven is just down the hall from fishy heaven, well past doggy heaven. If you see pony heaven, you’ve gone too far.
The medical examiner has not released a cause of death, and once they stopped laughing, the police would likely not call his death suspicious, if anyone were to inquire.
He was a good lobster, a kind lobster, and a blue lobster. His kind are known to be snippy, but he never hurt a sole. He was a mutant, true enough, but a good one, his only power was being smart enough to not climb out of his tank and meet the cats.
In some ways it will be like he’s still in his tank, hiding where no one can see him, but he will be missed, at least until he is replaced.
Goodbye Jack, and may you find all the mussels, crabs, clams and snails your heart desires in lobster heaven.
So sorry to hear Jack is gone. Now I wish I had spent more time with him, and got to know him better. There are always regrets at a time like this. My deepest condolences.
