Squids

 

WellÖ.. Hello thereÖ

 

Remember my predicament with all this ďAhoy Brethren of the Coast!Ē thing and me trying to write a story about pirates now knowing one of a ship from the other?

 

Well, Iíve had to find myself a job and guess what? Iíve landed in a company that imports and exports squids, cuttlefish and octopus from and to all over the world.  Now you can have a good laugh if you want to but till I went into this place I couldnít tell the difference between a calamari and sepia.  There are so many different types of them! And sizes, letís not talk about sizes!  They all have different names!

All I knew about these creatures until now was that you, ( me ) went to the shop and bought some, cut it up and fried it with some olive oil and garlic and had it as a tapas!  Well, Iíve definitely found a new world here!  Iíve even found out that there are some giant squids roaming the oceans that actually attack swimmers!  Urghhhh! With those giant tentacles! Yuck!

 

Iím lucky though.  I donít work in the processing plant, I work in the office so I donít come back home stinking of fish!  I must be a bit weird because I like going down the processing plant with huge wellies and a white coat and a cap to see all the process and the little creatures ready to be packed and dispatched to all those big supermarkets!  Perhaps Iím a 4 by 4 on high heels!

 

I donít have time to write stories right now because apart from working and teaching from home Iím moving which means Iím filling banana and apple boxes of books, lots of them.  How did they all get into my house?  I even have books in the bathroom!

 

Iíll let you know how I get onÖ

 

Have fun

Alexandra Riera
