Holy smokes, people are super into octopuses* as the moment!
*Fun fact: Before you go all grammar-police on me, here’s the scoop on the proper plural of octpus:
According to Merriam-Webster, both octopuses and octopi are acceptable plurals. The reason for the octopi plural is because some people mistakenly associate octopus with Latin words like syllabus and alumnus. … However, the word octopus is actually of Greek origin. The plural of octopus in Greek is, in fact, octopodes.
Anywho… another little story.
When I was a kid, my mom would take me to sushi for special occasions. As a third grader, I proudly stood up and told my class that our tentacled friends were indeed my favorite food. Most of my classmates squirmed. I loved the weird, rubbery/crunchy texture.
But since those days, I’ve come to appreciate the octopus as a clever creature capable of fairly complex thoughts and behaviors, so now I keep to just painting them.
