When I lived in PNG I expected unsavory creatures in my food. It was just a normal daily experience. There were lots of flies and lots of ants and sometimes other crazy surprises. But I was living in Papua New Guinea.
So imagine my surprise as I am eating my cereal the other day in suburban California and I find legs. Yes, legs. And they were attached to a little body. I put my spoon down and of course, took a picture. Can you see the little guy? Here is a close up.
Lots of thoughts went through my head. I should be thankful I have plenty of food to eat. Despite having ants in our house, we don’t have to battle them in our food. I rarely have a meal that I have to cover between bites to keep flies out. And once again, we have plenty of food. This was not the last bowl of cereal I had access to.
So in conclusion I am ultimately thankful but that won’t stop me from sharing these pictures and complaining just a little. Anyone interested in a silverfish as a garnish for your cereal? We have plenty and would be happy to share:-)
