Insect Guide

This is from the book, “How better to appreciate insects by understanding their relationships with plants, man, and other animals.” I don’t mind telling you, I have a very complicated relationship with insects. I need them, but find them insufferable for the most part. Flies and mosquitoes in particular. I mourn for the bees, as should we all. Even with flies, I catch them and throw them outside. I’m only partially Buddhist, I almost more enjoy the challenge of it. I don’t do it like Karate Kid, with chopsticks; I just use my hands. I’m pretty good at it though. first time I ever tried I was a sophomore or junior in high school and working at a hot dog joint. It was slow and I was standing around a bunch of older guys as a fly flew by. It was a clean place, these things just happen sometimes. Anyway, I was feeling randy and made some kung fu comment and grabbed at the fly. I was unexpectedly successful and immediately commanded respect and awe from my elder co-workers, which of course made me feel invincible. That feeling was short lived.

Look at this little bugger (teehee)! But seriously, it’s a cool little book. The green type and silver graphic of a dragonfly (damselfly?) look great on the gray cloth cover. It’s travel friendly and above suspicion. It’s in great condition.
