After reading writer H.R.R. Gorman’s story ‘Food Should be Silent,’ I got a touch of inspiration — albeit closer to home…
If my hand’s weren’t so full, I would plug my ears. The squealing of the Dungeness crab is nearly more than I can take.
It’s so loud that even the dogs heard them from outside. The crab’s hideous pealing sent them into a frenzy of barking and hopping around in an extreme state of canine excitement.
My wife, in the back room, wants to know what in the hell I did to set them off. I refuse to explain because she’s already pissed that I brought live crab into the house.
I’m so damn glad I can’t hear cauliflower scream.
