Make Mine Coffee, Thanks

She: “What’s that swimming in your tea?”

He: “The only thing swimming in my tea is tea. Which is how I’d like to keep it, please.”

She: “I guess you don’t want to go camping with me then.”

He: “Huh? Why would tea have anything to do with whether I go camping with you?”

She: “Well, on the camping trips I’ve been on, you boil the water over the campfire and pour the tea. When you do that, all these little gnats come sniffing around. They go straight for the water in the cup and dive in. Presto. Open swim.”

He: “And gnat-flavored tea. Probably not in the markets for a reason.”

She: “Hey. It’s protein.”

He: “Is it? Does that mean you get any relief from the insects after you’ve graduated from high school?”

She: “Not really. You see, they’re pro-teen, but they’re also not anti-aging. Otherwise, they would be in the markets. Everybody’d be drinking the stuff.”

He: “Right. I can see the marketing slogan now.”

She: “Oh?”

He:This Stuff Bugs Me!

    I believe it might bug me too. Probably a June bug or a roach.
    Don’t I have a nice sister? We were buddies growing up on the farm (Nebraska).

    No bug tea
    sounds good to me!

    Our squirrels are well fed. They seem to know where every acorn is located. This one would disappear under the snow (it’s over two feet deep!) and reappear with an acorn. It chowed down on the nut and then went back for more.

    Love, I have it on good authority — mine — that gnats like coffee, too.

  4. This isn’t making me feel too good about the extended camping we’ll be doing this summer! I’m wondering what *else* I’d forgotten about camping, now… but the kids are sure to love it.

    This is why I put a lid on my hot drinks when camping!
    But maybe I should let the mosquitoes drink the cocoa and then they’d leave me alone?

    ants, flies, mosquitoes etc..
    They all manage to get swallowed.
