Brett and Lenore were over for seafood last night. It’s the [plug] Save-On Foods Lobster Event, wherein we land-locked folk are able to purchase for a reasonable price the temporary companionship of a live lobster. We bought four, and cooked them in a broth of lemon and onion.
It’s one of those rare events: a brutal evening when one is forced back to the primal roots of times past of killing one’s own food.
Maybe that’s why it was suggested (albeit mostly in jest) that we should make a little lobster snuff video. We didn’t, and instead retreated to the living room to discuss politics over the muted election debate broadcast on CBC.
There’s almost a metaphor there, no? Four helpless politicians being prepared for election, dropped into a boiling cauldron of twists and spices, could almost be an analogy to our dinner last night. Odd how those things connect.
