I’m visiting Poseidon a little earlier today (5pm) in the hopes he’ll be more receptive to asking me questions.
I adjust his environment to normal levels and hop over to the insect terrarium to grab a caterpillar. He eats it and then thanks me; and he talks back! He reminds me that it is the cold and flu season outside and to take some zinc at the first sign of the sniffles. He still doesn’t ask me any questions; I’m starting to think he’s done with that.
The blue caterpillar from yesterday has hatched from its cocoon and I think the reason it’s a different color is to distinguish between the sexes. I see that a moth has gotten stuck in the spider web and I see no sign of the spider so I decide to save it. I pick it up and quite randomly drop it in the inventory box; I never even thought to do this. I now know the moths are known as kimoths, the caterpillars simply larvae, the brown things that I never knew what they were I now know are seeds.
Don’t know what to do with Poseidon, he’s such a downer compared to Studmuffin. Maybe this period where he isn’t asking any questions is symbolic of our teenage years. As children we must know about everything but as teenagers we think we know it all, and we can be very grumpy at times.
