Thursday, August 11, 2011 is Day 11 of the Second Global Celebration of:
ANT APPRECIATION MONTH INTERNATIONAL©2010
Said HOLIDATE® is being staged for Today & the Remainder of August only because ANTS are so ANTeresting.
Everybody has an ANT story. Some are better than others. My First Encounter with an ANT STORY began when my MOM told me about her ANT-rated Tale (although ANTS don’t really have ‘tails’ like dogs or cats do) when I was about 6 – give or take a half century ago –although the SPECIES – all 12,500 of them – dates back some 130 million years – far longer than any T-Rex has been state-side.
MOM’s Story goes like this: She went to a picnic – an ANT dropped into her Ice Cream – only wanted a little Taste, I’m sure. She freaked out – dropped the cone – cone then fed about 10,000 other ANTS swarming nearby. It may have been a plot to cease her Ice Cream. No Ice Cream Cone for Mom…however, THE ANTS had themselves one heck of a Picnic. Ice cream in the 1930s was differANT than it is Today…but it was cold & refreshing as all Ice Creams are since refrigeration was making and leaving its Mark – clear across the ground. Talk about getting cold feet…all 6 of them.
What’s your ANT Story? No, this is not going in to become a CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE ANT LOVER’S SOUL Series…although it could…
