Would you could you in a box? Would you could you with a fox? Would you eat them here or there? Would you eat them anywhere?

The weekly veggie box came.

He saw the bag and asked, Chips? (Why would they sell…? You’re not a corn chip fan, why did you…) He was about to reach for some. I headed him off, shaking my head.



Only later did I see the word Chirps at the top, but yeah, those are chips made from a high protein source that happens to be, um, bird-friendly, other ingredients aside. One bug per chip.

The Imperfect Produce people were trying to close them out because they were getting close to their sell-by date and during the brief weekly glance at the offerings I’d thought, well that sounds curious.

And then spent the week wondering whether that was really such a good idea. It’s easy to be adventuresome when the adventure’s far away. Now that they’re here I…I…

I find that I just do not seem to want to open that bag.

It is safe to say I don’t think he’s in a rush to, either.

We’re going to a potluck dinner next week where I’m sure they could be the talk of the night. Better bring a chocolate torte–no, two! And peaches from Andy’s!–to make sure they forgive us.

“You know what bugs me about you guys?”


The puns, they await. We may never live this down….

I am somewhat curious, but would also be extremely hesitant to open the bag. But I guess I could be convinced to try it at a party, so maybe that’s your best bet.

what funny timing on this post – during the baseball game I was watching last night, someone brought some concession food – grasshoppers! – to the broadcast booth. One of them tried one and spent the next few innings rather unhappy about the experience. Apparently cooked VERY spicy.

I’m trying to prepare to include more insects in my diet as a planet-friendly move. I do this by consciously noting, each and every time I enjoy them, that shrimp and crabs are really kind of like insects of the sea.

I’ll admit, it’s a work in progress.
