when i was but a child i found seven abandoned baby rabbits at the base of a tree. i brought them home in a box and fed them milk through a straw. i went to a sleepaway camp for a few days and returned to find that my parents had given them away. they werent given away they were actually dead.
When I was five years old I went out to feed our bunny, Honey Bunny, who was in a cage kind of thing outside and found his poor body covered in ants that I obviously assumed were evil and had killed him and were now eating his body. He had been stung by a scorpion, which my mom found in the cage.
I've hated ants ever since.
But not the scorpion?
That's like saying you hate the crime scene investigators but not the murderer.
Yeah but I came out and saw these ants "killing" my bunny and hated them. My mom found the scorpion later, but I still blamed in on those stupid ants. Probably because I kind of already hated ants...
When I was a kid I'd hide food (e.g., cookies, chips, poptarts) under my bed and eat them in bed onc emy mom tucked me in. (Serious fat kid problems...). One morning I woke up covered
in ants. I lived in So Cal at the time and this was during the summer, so ants were plentiful. They were like crawling alll over my body, including my face.
This + Honey Bunny = hatred of ants that still persists
