Well, last night, after we got home form the basketball game, I noticed there was a rogue chocolate chip on the counter. Hmmmmm...she must have missed this one, I thought to myself.
And then I did what I always do if there is a random bit of chocolate just hanging out - I popped it into my mouth.
But it wasn't a chocolate chip. It was a .......
Asian Lady Beetle.
And for the record, it tasted nothing like chocolate. It actually tasted very bitter and after I crunched into it, the beetle emitted a smell very similar to my other indoor nemesis - the stink bug!
My kids were relieved to learn that at least I didn't swallow it. But they were even more disgusted when I told them that it was still moving after I spit it out.
Lesson for the day - think twice before you eat anything that you find laying on my counter!
