|Enjoyed your story ! Reminded me of a couple of things:
1. Ants are 'tireless' workers. Makes them PERFECT circus performers - and Andrew and his ants worked
well together !
2. When my daughter was little, she once asked me to explain the purpose of a 'flea' market -
Well, I thought it would be funny to answer by telling her it's a place where you can see 'performing fleas.'
"What?" she asked, a befuddled expression appearing on her little face.
"Oh, yes," I replied. "Big fleas, little fleas, talented fleas of every color in the rainbow. They hop, jump, and skip around like little circus performers. That's why people go to flea markets - to see the performing fleas."
Of course, she looked at me like I was stone cold crazy - her mother shook her head and said to me later, " I can't believe you told her that!"
Anyway, while visiting my daughter a few years ago (she's a married adult now) she was showing me her two new cats she had recently adopted. I was checking them out, and she asked, "what are you doing, Dad?"
"Checking them for fleas," I answered.
"FLEAS?" she yelled out.
Now "I" was the one who rendered the befuddled expression.
"DON'T even go there," she bellowed !
