I found this conversation in a book I have:

Look out! The lobster is getting away.
I got it. Hmm, it's worried.

I don't understand what " it's worried." means.

Please explain the meaning.
Thank you.

it's is a contraction of "it is"

I think they're referring to the lobster. Replace "it's" with "the lobster is" and reread the passage, see if it makes anymore sense to you.

hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply.

I understand "it" is about lobster, but I don't understand "worried" meaning.
Is it mean that the lobster was replaced?

Think the lobster is worried that it's been caught.

Hello! :D

Hamamatsu? Great! :up: I live in Toyoda-cho. :D
We are 30 minutes away from each other. Small world!

EX: Hmm, it's worried.

This is what the speaker thinks: the lobster tried to escape (i.e., get away) because it was worried something bad or terrible was going to happen to it.

I'd be worried and try to escape, too, if a gigantic animal picked me up and set me in a box/pot, wouldn't you? :lol:

Thank you for your reply.

I thought as you wrote at first, but I wonder if there was another meaning.
So I should think this " worried " is adjective, and the lobster was worried to be cooked.

:eek: Toyoda-cho is very near from my place!
I live in the southern part of Hamamatsu.
