BTW, yes I do usually try and post about more “meaningful” topics … or about the wide-wide-wonderful-world of writing and publishing BUT this … well, this was just to darn good to pass up … plus, I know my daughter will be thrilled to know she “made” the Internet!!
The Average Life of a Fruit Fly
Ever set one of these up before? It’s a fruit fly trap. A paper funnel in a Ball jar with vinegar and rotten fruit in the bottom. We probably caught two hundred fruit flies … really. Our kitchen was loaded. And what does my animal-loving twelve year old do with the jar … she takes it outside and releases them into the “wild”. And the world is now a better place in her eyes …
Does anyone else have a kid bent on saving the world from savages like me that make traps to kill fruit flies?? Tell me – have they ever done anything to top this?
