Edmund the blue shark felt the need to redeem himself, to give back and balance out some of his anti-social deeds. There was the time he had a young seal for dessert...... and the time he tipped a canoe over, causing the young man to drown and his fiancee to escape, but only with severe shock and emotional trauma.

So Edmund went on a Be Good mission to give shelter to those sea creatures who needed it. He gave shelter to a sea bass with ripped dorsal fin, he allowed a family of crabs to hide among his teeth.
Then he saw an octopus chasing a lobster and allowed the lobster to swim into his mouth to hide.

The lobster crawled down deep into Edmund's belly and pinched it all over with his large, strong pinchers. It ruined Edmund's digestion for the rest of his life.

That's what you get sometimes.

I am not a good writer...but the image looks scary...Can you imagine being inside a shark?
The other day I was at the beach here in Florida and I was in the water when I saw what appears to be a shark...and let me tell you I did not know I could swim that fast...I was out of the water in seconds...lately I found out it was not a shark...scary scary moment.

A shark is like a
comb with many teeth that
swallows up tangles.

I've had this major problem,
Everywhere I go...
I've asked a million fishes,
But no one seems to know.

Maybe it's my breath,
Maybe it's my fin,
I've made a thousand appointments.
But no one will let me in.

I've even heard some say,
They consider me a menace.
It just shouldn't be so hard,
To find a family dentist.

WHY? said...

Why do they hate me? I only try to survive like all the other creatures. Is wanting to live a sin? Like you, I have to eat. Like you, I try to protect myself the only way I know how. I know my teeth are frightening. But, I need them to survive. Remember, I am here for a reason. Like you. Like the worm and the ant and the eagle in the sky.

Kayla hid from the scubamen in her friend Blue's mouth. When she needed to see, she would tap her stick, and Blue would open his mouth wide. She knew she was safe. Blue would never let the scubamen find her.
