Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

I don't know if I ever shared this story, but when I was in grad school they sent the TAs around to do the faculty evaluations. My first semester I was sent to do the evaluation on the Entomology lab.

The prof met me at the door with a big smile. He flourished a plate of cookies and asked me if I wanted one.

I was ABOUT to reach for it, but then my brain went, "Wait. This is an entomology class. This man is offering you a cookie. Something is wrong here."

I was able to quickly say, "Thanks, but I just finished lunch" just as I noticed the little legs sticking out in the cookie. They were his (in)famous Chocolate Chirpies, made with crickets baked in.

While I've probably eaten my share of bug PARTS (if you're to believe the urban legends about food processing), I draw the line where I can actually see LEGS.

I just sent your wonderful story to my granddaughter who is participating in the summer reading program in Smyrna, GA. I can't wait to hear her response. What a fun librarian you are! Thanks for sharing.

Good for you, setting such a ... good? example for the kids. :)

I've added a photo of the Crick-ettes to yesterday's post. Just scroll down and have a peep. Thanks for all the "feed" back.
