Whats Bugging YOU?

So I had this little problem. I was sitting out on the breezeway contemplating some of the world’s most confounding ideas. When all of a sudden a giant wasp decided to have a drink of my coke and it dived in ~ head first no less. Now I don’t drink soda often, it makes my toes look like sausages, so I was a bit put out. What to do? Well being a regular type of frugal person that I am, I fished it out after it drowned. Then continued on with my contemplatingness and drinking of the now watered down coke. Then Bam! WamOH it occurred to me…Crap that dang-ol’ wasp most likely peed in my coke!



Does it look like it to you? Come on my dear internets, has anything like this happened to you and please tell me that you just fished out the drowned bug and drank on without missing a puddle. Please tell me I’m not the only one…

BAHAHAHAHA!!! You brightened my day with this! I had no idea I wasn't happy enough today until I saw this post, holy crap I'm still smiling!

Yes I've dug the bug out of the beverage (normally alcoholic) and finished it off. Sometimes it's not worth getting up... Happy Wednesday!

He, he, he...I'm Scottish so you know for sure I'm drinking the pop.

Something similar happened to my dad once, except it was a coworker who dipped his false teeth in everyones beer. My dad, of course, drank his like nothing happened...

Well, seeing the bug and fishing it out, then drinking the rest of the beverage is still way better than not knowing the bug had taken a nosedive and you take a big swig, swallow drink and bug with it! Now, drinking something after someone had dipped their false teeth in it -I'm thinking that might be pushing the envelope just a bit too much -at least for me, even if I too am of the Scottish ethnicity, sometimes I do draw a fine line, ya know!

Well, I can't say that I've ever drank my drink after a bug went swimming in it but I HAVE eaten berries that were very low to the ground which I am sure had some dog pee on them. Wasp pee has to have protein or something in there that's good for you....

Oh yes, I have drank beer after fishing out a moth. It quite added to the flavor, in a nice way I thought.

I've also had a scorpion in my milk, fire ants in my hibiscus tea, and a couple spiders in my wine.

(Okay, those last 3 were lies.)

But the moth one is true!

I just about spewed my tea all over my puter! You're hilarious Paige.

And yes, that coke does have a yellowish tinge to it.

Does putting my bare foot into a shoe housing a monster of a Tarantula count? It did bug me :)

You weenies! Doncha know bugs are protein? And nonfat!

I do draw the line at ingesting botulism-carrying cockroaches, I must admit.

I always throw out the drink...
Allergic to some bugs so paraniod.
Stopped bringing anything but closed bottles out on the deck to aviod that.

Better luck next time- go for the small, recappable bottles!

That is hilarious. Kamakazi wasp! Waging a war on coke drinkers.

If another wasp ever decides to commit suicide in your drink, don't continue to drink afterwards. That's all I'm gonna say, girlfriend.

If it was something like a Manhattan, wouldn't the alcohol have negated any bug pee?

If so..... A perfect reason to drink Manhattans!

My bad. I know. ,-)

Happy 4th of July!!!

Paige, you use the same kinda glass I do! I wish I could say I don't drink pop much but the truth is I have a glass of diet Dr. Pepper with me at all times, and yes, way too often have to swat at the bugs that want a drink too.
