SO...this is the story of how I found a cyclops and how the cyclops ate some of my buddies
After landing on the island of the lotus-eaters, I had to practically drag my mates back to the boat because they were so spaced out from the fruit of the lotus. After that, we were back, sailing peacefully.
Then we landed on the land of the cyclopes, where we met Polyphemus, the one eyed giant.
He seemed nice at first, but then he swept up and ate two of my men, putting the rest of us in a cage to devour later. It was then that I started scheming how I'd kill him.
The next day while he was out taking care of his pasture, I heated an olive wood stake so I'd be prepared to fulfill my plans.
I decided that I'd trick him and get him so drunk that he would fall asleep in an intoxicated state, giving me the opportunity to stab him then.
