An Ode to the Colossal Squid

Ah, what a great day it shall be.  Oscar requested an awesome doodle this morning...a majestic cephalopod so mystical he didn't think it was real despite the National Geographic documentary we watched together yesterday morning.  For those who aren't aware, the Colossal Squid differs from the more renown Giant Squid.  Colossal has swivel and three-point hooks on their tentacles, not just suckers with teeth.  It's the largest known invertebrate, so bow down people.  Oscar's second request in addition to the drawing is that we 1.  charter a ship  2. venture out to sea  3.  I put on some scuba gear and dive (he is very clear that only I am to do this because he thinks it is scary)  4. lure & catch one colossal squid and,  finally5. build a giant tank in the living room for him to be our pet.  Clearly I have a lot to do...happy Friday xoxo

  1. While you're down there could you get two? I've always wanted a colossal pet squid! It's weird how much Oscar and I have in common.
