Onto Week Four and the Final!
Well, the Kraken has been sighted so many places and I’m pleased to announce for the most part, most of these sightings didn’t consist of his eating anyone.
Bodes well for him making it back to the Caribbean without the National Guard in hot pursuit. Yes, from helping students cheat, to lending a hand with sandbagging the swollen Mississippi, he’s been good. I know terrorizing a sushi bar owner who had no idea how much the beast could eat on the employees eat free buffet isn’t really acting the humanitarian…or cephalopodarian…but he’s doing well!
I expect him to get back with an extension postcard collection and he better bring me a shot glass from every place he’s visited!
Now, the sighting that had me the most excited was from Amanda Woodward, who reported second-hand that a friend called her with a sighting… After reading my ode to Jethro Tull on the Daily Dose of Decadence she posted an alert.
Wow, Maureen, after hearing the story I may owe my friend an apology! You see I thought she was picking on me. I just received a phone call from her, she was at Starbucks and claims to have seen the Kraken serving as barista. She said he was working window, counter, grinding, steaming, and blending …She said when she spoke to the manager he said why hire 5 employees when 1 Kraken does the job better and will work for fish. If I get “crackin” I may be able to get over there and catch him.
Alas, I hurried over to my local Starbucks but he was gone before I got there. The manager said he was a great worker, but the complaints of slime making the cups slippery and the ensuing lawsuits from spilled hot coffee meant he had to go.
Amanda wins a gift card from Amazon for her studious attempts to help me find my kraken!
Only nine days left! Where do you think my kraken is?
