You show me yours, I’ll show you mine.

.

Now, now… don’t get excited. I live in Maine, I’m talking lobster.

.

.

There was a state wide contest and even our local pub co owner joined in.

.

.

Ooh… a blue!

.

.

If you’ve never done it, or even thought about it? Trust me, lobstering is hard work.

.

.

You battle the weather, the equipment and the ocean. Fisherman die or are lost at sea every year. I’ve personally known two.

.

.

And yes..

.

.

Lobsters really are this small in the beginning.

.

.

Cuddly? Not so much.

But damn, they sure are tasty.

.

Because sometimes bigger really is better.

.

Since skunking my husband at Scrabble has become a weekly pastime… I decided to up our game.

Literally.

.

.

Bigger tiles for the where the hell did I leave my reading glasses now? visually challenged due to encroaching decrepitude crowd.

.

.

And a much bigger, fancier, wooden, swiveling board with raised ridges to keep the letters in place.

How much bigger?

.

.

Well, the box said giant and that’s a pretty apt description.

.

.

So far we’re loving it.

But I’m afraid it’s going to have to be a permanent decorative fixture… because if you think the board is big, you should see the friggin’ enormous box it came in.

.

How big is big?

 

Big is a relative term.

I think my butt is big, but then I look at J Lo and Beyoncé and feel positively svelte.

So in an attempt to answer the title question..

 

 

Yes, traffic lights are that big…. which makes your go to excuse of “But I didn’t see that red light officer” a trifle lame.

Moose are this big.

 

 

This might surprise people who don’t live in Maine or Alaska, but yes. Hit one with your car and you’ll find out just how freakishly gigantic they really are.

The pyramids?

Yup.

Pretty big.

 

 

And to be honest, this picture made me cross climbing to the top of one off my travel bucket list.

And finally, for Masercot. Who has never fully gotten on board the wombat bandwagon.

There’s wombat big.

 

 

Big and beautiful.

Yes sir.

They got that right.
