So, remember how my cousin Patrick and I spent way too much time Labor Day weekend trying to get the perfect Zombie vs. Lobster video?

It didn’t really work out for us. Or the lobsters.

The lobster carcasses were consigned to the trash. The trash bag went into the minivan, which took it to the dump. Except that the trash bag leaked.

That was September 1.

September 20, I returned to Boston, and my cousin Dan picked me up in the minivan. With all the windows open. Two detailings later, and the ghost of lobster past still haunts the minivan.
