Turns out the Allston couple scared of lobsters are real.
C, who makes up half the couple, posted the above video of her husband's attempts to cook the seabeasts (finally: in the pot). She reports this morning:
We received them as gifts. Personally, I knew up front I was scared of them but then I found out my husband was also scared and the drama started.
We received quite a few offers, someone promised to come over and plans fell through last min. We were forced to take matters in our own hands.
We both like lobsters, but already cooked, shelled and on a plate. I don't think we'll be having anymore for a long time though. We were both quite scared and disgusted by the process.
As you'll see in the videos I attached to the edited version of my ad, I was standing at a distance laughing at my husband. The hardest I've ever laughed in a long time. Lol.
I can say after this, we'll gladly turn down gifts like this in the future. It wasn't worth the stress levels we experienced. If you've ever really been scared of anything, then I'm certain you'll understand.
Also, she's updated their original ad to note that, no, they were not seeking a three-way with a lobster.
