Chased By Krakens


A Thousand Arms To Hold You: When I was a little kid, my parents took me to the Natural History Museum where there was a massive squid under glass. Even though it was dead, the alien creature completely terrified me. I had dreams of tentacled horrors for nights after that visit to the Smithsonian. Even when I would leave bed to get away from my nocturnal mind, imaginary Krakens would still pursue me from room to room while I wandered through the townhouse. All this is just to say that I probably should not have read this article about the Diablo Rojo (aka the Humboldt squid) today while I was eating lunch.
