Everything Bugs...

Bugs get me out of bed and are the last thing on my mind when I drift off to sleep, most nights. I have a short attention span because I can. Who wants to eat the same kind of food all the time when hundreds of cultures have perfected thousands of dishes? Who wants to go to the zoo and stare at the same caged lions and monkeys, or wander over to the little insect kiosk and look at a 3 or 4 different tanks of bugs when the outside of the kiosk is covered with six wild, native species on a sunny day? I can find something I've never seen before in my own backyard nearly every time I make an effort (and I look often)!
