Every time I drop them in the boiling water I cry for a moment

Aside from chicken wings, one of my favorite things to eat is lobster. As you know, in order for lobster to be yummy, you have to buy them when they are alive and then kill them during the cooking process.

I always place the lobsters in the kitchen sink while I boil the water. I see their big eyeballs staring at me, and sometimes my son will give them names, which makes this whole situation worse. Every time I drop them in the boiling water I cry for a moment because I see them flap around, until they are suddenly still, and dead.
