Hmmmm . . . . . I always wondered why the color blue is associated with sadness. Does anyone know the origin of this? But that's not the real reason for this post.
Actually, I'm more than a little blue - I'm blue all over. My legs are blue, my head is blue; an absolutely gorgeous shade of cobalt blue. Even my antennae are blue. This is caused by a genetic defect. Now, most of my peers are greenish-brown but gather up approximately 2 million of us and chances are you will find that one rare blue one.
The last time we were on Cape Cod, we took a little day trip to Woods Hole where the famous Woods Hold Oceanographic Institute can be found.We visited there and then went to the nearby (within walking distance) Woods Hole aquarium to see this little guy. I think his picture came out really well considering I took it through the glass.
I know this isn't earth shattering or anything to do with books, but I just thought some of you might like to see a blue lobster. Wikipedia (scroll down to Mutations) has a pic of an even rarer lobster-it's yellow and the chances of finding one are 30 million to one! Now, that's rare!
Right about now I'd like to see a cooked one on a plate, but that's beside the point! So what do you think? Isn't he gorgeous?
