Yesterday was a slow day, the kind where you just don’t feel like doing anything at all. But I decided to cook anyway, despite my mind begging me to just starve for the night.
The recipe needed me to grind up some nuts. I located the grinder (a quite difficult task in and of itself). After I put the nuts in, I realized there was an ant inside. A normal person would consider taking the nuts out and the ant, and maybe even washing the grinder. Not me. No, I thought ‘Can you eat ants?’. Yup. I seriously considered grinding the little sucker up with my food and EATING it.
Yes you can eat them, in case you were wondering. I Googled it. They’re mostly protein, and something about being beneficial for your eyes.
Did I eat it? No. But I have eaten an ant before. I was 10, and some creep put some ants in my lemonade. I didn’t realize until after I took a sip. I don’t think the eye thing is true though, I wear prescription glasses.
