Good LORD, are you kidding me with that thing? When I was a kid, my friends Dad would tell us a story about kayaking when a shark approaches his kayak. I don’t remember the details of the story, but a phrase he used always stuck in my mind. He held up his hands into the shape of a circle saying, “it had an eye the size of a softball!” As I grew older, I grew to understand the hyperbole in his story. Now… I’m wondering if maybe there wasn’t any hyperbole after all?
By the way, I’ve got my money on a squid for this thing. What’d’ya got?
