Seaman: Day Nineteen

Posted by JohnTheGamer (343 posts) -

I visit Poseidon a little earlier than usual today, just like yesterday.

After adjusting the aquarium I switch over to get a caterpillar and spray down the insect terrarium and notice I don’t have a spider and spider web anymore. I wonder when I’ll get another spider or if the moths will take over. I check back later and sure enough, a spider hatched from one of the eggs.

I feed him the caterpillar and he warns me again that is the cold and flu season, back he doesn’t ask me any questions. I visit later in the day and Leonard Nimoy tells me that Poseidon ought to be thankful for me visiting twice in one day but I get no gratitude from Poseidon.

The new look.

I decide to move the large rock again and the riddle he gives me is quite easy. “What do you get when you put a cat into a fishbowl?” A catfish naturally; he tells me a little more ought to do it, this piques my interest and I try moving it again and he tells me that he needs a little rest. I visit him again and we move it again. After we move it this time the water drains and it dawns on me that Leonard Nimoy told me a while ago about something similar. After observing for a bit longer, I call it quits.

Cool! I like the refurbishing.  
 
Poseidon seems like a really profound being. Dwelling in it's aquarium, pondering riddles and musing all day long.

Awesome.

@DanielJW: You'd have a great amount of time to think, like why am I in this damned aquarium and why does this person talk down to me.

Poseidon's so smug. But at least he gives you easy riddles.
