Tasting Ants

Conversations With My Daughter — Jilly Nines


“Yes, Jilly?”

“Hannah deaded something at school today.”

“Oh dear, what happened honey?”

“At recess she was tasting ants, and she deaded one by accident.”

“Tasting ants?”

“Yes. On a spoon she found in the playground.”

“Was anyone, a teacher, watching her?”

“When Miss Maya-Sara saw her, she took away Hannah’s spoon.”


“Yes, daddy?”

“Did you taste the ants too?”

“No, daddy. We only had one spoon.”
