100 Words - Octopus Tangents

octopus

Peter’s dreams would start in a variety of ways but they always ended with him being eaten by octopuses. As phobias go, fear of becoming octopus fodder is pretty rare. It became so bad that Peter was eventually unable to interact with any tentacled creature.

Oh, and I recently found out that since octopus is a Greek word, octopuses is the correct plural for casual conversation. I consider my writings to be casual. You really shouldn’t take anything that I write to be authoritative, or for that matter, true. That’s why it’s called fiction. Does this count as fiction? Unknown.
