Today I got fresh mussels, broke one open, and wrapped a little piece around my clear plastic skewer to offer it to Edwina. I was quite excited about this, as I was told she was raised on mussels. Filled with pride and generosity, I lowered the mussel down to her. She didn't take it, but instead blew sand at me several times. Then she came completely out of her lair in order to stretch her tentacles out as far as she could and she pushed the piece of mussel 3 inches upward as if to say "You can take your mussel and shove it!" ...Well!...I figured surely there must be some misunderstanding between us, so I tried again. Once again, she pushed that piece of food up the stick, with even more contempt! Then I offered a piece of fresh scallop because she's been taking it and eating it from me so far, and she took the scallop and threw it to the side! ...I've never wished for a digital camera so badly! It was hysterical. I will have to borrow my boyfriend's digital camera to put this on the net. Something tells me I've got a bimac with a STRONG personality. She doesn't hide that much. I can always find her sitting at her lair.
