The Octopus Essay

Octopus treasure sea

“Don’t you dare come!”

“Any closer?” I asked Sandy. She’d been working on this octopus essay for a week. I wanted to stop by her place and pick up my medium sized jewelry box. This was really starting to rankle me.

“In fact, I just discovered a vast trove of new info,” Sandy told me haughtily. “All about the Cephalo Age when octos ruled the world before the Great Upheaval.”

Personally, I was skeptical that octos ever ruled the world, but I couldn’t say that to Sandy because she insisted that she had many sources for this nutball belief. “Can’t you just leave my box outside? Then I can get it without bothering you?”

“No,” she said. “That would interrupt my flow of thought. Goodbye.”

Dang these squid and their inky endeavors!
