When I told the lobster that he was going to be cooked for dinner, he wasn't too happy.
But then I decided that he was too cute to eat, so I told him we would go to a Halloween party at Bapa's church instead. He liked that idea and cheered right up.
Once we got to the party, he found out that he was going to have to go back in the stockpot, and he was a little concerned and frightened.
But Aunt Sarah comforted him, promising that she wouldn't let anyone eat him.
Relieved, he calmed down and just enjoyed himself at the party. Everyone stopped to admire him and his cute cousin, Peter Pan. And really, who can blame them??
All of that admiration gets tiring, and before he knew it, Lobster had drifted off into Dream Land in his cozy little pot.
Mama loves her Little Lobster, and she can't wait to show him off today. (He will be wearing his lobster suit all day, all around town.)
