Disappointed that #14 does not link to giant ants.
@KeLynn Mary Roach is great. Her newest, "Gulp," is about the digestive system and it's really interesting, though not for the faint of heart.
I'm so relieved that we're past that sort of thing these d... oh. Wait. Right.
@olivebee My cat is squeamish about bugs while also being very interested in them. So when we get water bugs (construction next door, alas), he flips them over with one carefully extended paw and then chirps for me to come and dispose of it. It's a system.
@queenofbithynia My first ever recurring nightmare (that I can recall) was about my mother making me get into a bathtub that had a bunch of dead crane flies floating in it. I've been horrified by them ever since.
@Vera Knoop Should have known y'all were on it already. I'll see myself out.
I'm just gonna go ahead and be That Guy: cockroaches don't have eight shoes. Unless they carry a pair of spares.
