Bored

I saw a little clip on the mimic octopus recently. Fascinating creature. So then I decided to pluck one from the ocean and plop him at a bus stop, just to see what would happen.

Octopi are actually quite intelligent. In school, I read a study about how octopi can learn through observation. Cool stuff.

I've always found octopi interesting! Your mimic octopus is cute; I love how he's mimicking the old man with a cane of his own!

When I was a kid, I used to eat octopus. Oh wait that was squid. Little squid with blank ink. I like the carapace. They look like surgf boards.
