Damn her!

.

Last weekend we invited the husband’s 4 sisters who live in Maine to a barbecue/pool tournament/behold the majesty of the Barn Mahal man cave/ party. It was a good time… except for one dastardly deed. You see one of his sisters brought this:

.

.

After I specifically said we were grilling filet mignon… she had the audacity to contribute to the feast.

.

.

A dozen lobsters, fresh from the ocean that morning. Damn her rotten black soul!

.

.

I had to watch those succulent creatures being disbanded…

.

.

Dropped in the pot…. ( Only 2 inches of water please. We steam, not boil )

.

.

Covered with a lid ( And a brick. They tend to buck when dying. Hell, wouldn’t you? )

.

.

Oh, the horror!

.

.

The horror of watching everyone tuck into the delightful crustaceans I can no longer eat.

It was Hell. Pure, unadulterated Hell.

😫😫😫

The only pleasure I took was not being able to find our crackers and picks. Substitutions had to be made.

.

.

Good thing the tool box was close by.

.

.

The husband was schooled at the pool table by two of his sisters, which I thought was fitting punishment for consuming and enjoying lobster in front of his now allergic wife.

But once the party was over, the mess cleaned up and everyone went home… what was almost worse than watching everyone eat them?

.

.

Seeing the two leftover red beauties every time I opened the fridge the next day and knowing I couldn’t make a lobster roll.

.

.

Hell, I tell you.

It was Hell.

      1. Allergies are so weird, you develop allergic reactions to lobster, which I assume you ate a lot in your life. I was allergic to eggplant as a kid, and now? No allergies……I’m allergic to cilantro too, but I’m not going to try and find out if I’m not anymore. That, as my friend River said once, is the devils herb.

  1. I like lobster – but feel it’s best to eat it (at least) 9 hours after death – not so fresh it tries to crawl out of the pot.
    I mean com’on, it’s soul has to have time to get back to Atlantis.

    1. Mine is more of a gastric allergy… which my husband can attest to since he had to pull over on I-95 North so I could vomit. Not fun.
      We had lots of leftovers… macaroni salad, spinach salad and rosemary roasted new potatoes.
      😉
