Yorick Found the Lobster

Logbook Entry : 00069
February 11th, 2011

So we woke up early the next morning to get a jump on finding the lobster, or "Red" as Hunter called it. We honestly had not much of a choice in waking up early as I really hadn't slept all night. We were both in sleeping bags and the floor was kinda hard. Hunter hadn't an issue sleeping as he didn't wake up til about 10 minutes after me. All bright eyed and bushy tailed!

After we ate breakfast, some eggs and toast, we started on our search of the lobster. We searched the same rooms as we had the day earlier but again found nothing. Hunter had thought that maybe it was a good idea if I went and got Yorick. For some reason, I hadn't thought of that. So I went and got Yorick and he helped in the search.

So we went back to the living room. I told Hunter we need to look behind everything. Just because we had already done that, doesn't mean that the lobster couldn't have snuck into the room as we were searching another. So what we did was search the living room again and had Yorick wait there as we proceeded to the next room. And wouldn't you know, we found the lobster. While we headed to the next room, the lobster tried to sneak into the living room after we left for another. Yorick had started crying which alerted us. We ran back to the living room to find the lobster staring at Yorick. I was shocked at how huge this thing had gotten! The last time I saw it, it was about as small as Yorick. Now the lobster was about 3 times bigger! Anyway, Hunter dove at the lobster but it jumped out of his reach. we chased it around the living room until I finally was able to get a hold of it.

With the lobster firmly in hand, we headed to the bathroom and put it in the tub. I looked at Hunter and still couldn't understand why he thought it would be alright to bring the lobster home. He didn't reply but did drop his head down. He knew he shouldn't have done that. It couldn't be very healthy for the lobster to live in the tub. Hunter told me he was feeding the lobster dog food. It was the only thing it would eat. And that would probably be the reason it had gotten so big. So now that we had caught the lobster, what do we do with it now? We couldn't bring it back to Boston and release it into the water! It wouldn't survive the cold waters in the harbour. We found ourselves caught in a tough spot. Well, this was all on Hunter. I am going home!
