Do Not Read This Ginger

I just ate a bug. Accidentally. Scott Holmes called to speak to Quinn and I took a bite of taco soup while I was speaking to him and my bite crunched. I thought that it was the skin of an onion, so I spit it in the sink and it was a beetle. BEETLE! Of course, I'm doing all these things while Scott is talking on the other end of the phone and I'm trying not to wretch in the kitchen sink. I'm actually still trying not to wretch just thinking about it. So I suddenly announce to Scott, "I just ate a beetle!" To which laughter is the reply. To which I reply, "must... have... Listerene..."

I have clean breath now.

I think I will probably do mouthwash again though.

It was crunchy, but it didn't taste like anything.

Well, maybe taco soup, a little.

Ok, when you title something "Do Not Read This Ginger" of course I gonna read it! Wish I hadn't because I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

It reminds me of the time we got milkshakes at Sonic and mine had a bug in it!

I know she has a myspace, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a blog.

BUT, I'm trying to convince her to join this fun bloggy world.

Did you wash it down with beetle juice? haha! VERY funny! All I do is swallow nats and an occasional moth. You know, things that don't crunch and tickle as they go down.
