7 years, 10 months.
Last Saturday morning, you took a walk with Papa around the yard, collecting bugs and placing them in a huge plastic jug. You also tossed some leaves and grass in there as well.
You loved getting to see a spider, a hornet, and a cricket interact with each other in your portable bio-dome; along with a few other random, smaller bugs.
During the entire 3 hour-long ride back from Nonna and Papa’s house in Alabama to our house in Tennessee, you gave me a constant play-by-play of what the status was inside the jar:
“Daddy! The cricket just fell off a leaf and landed on top of the spider but then he jumped off the spider onto another leaf!”
Maybe you should carry along a jar of live bugs for every road trip from now on. It was pure entertainment for you.
One thought on “Dear Jack: Nothing Like Taking Home a Big Jug of Live Bugs”
I’m sure the critters helped keep him from asking, Are we there yet? A million times. Or my favorite is, Are we closer to Granny’s house or our house?
