May 1st 2010: I bought an ant farm. I put 4 ants in it. Let’s see what happens.
Why 4 ants? … ants are hard to catch … and I just want to see how much damage 4 ants can do.
Do they have names? … yes, Hilts, Velinski, Ives, and Bartlett (aka Big X).
I may add Sedgwick, Blythe, and Hendley and a few more later.
June 9th 2010: 4 ants can do a lot of damage! They’ve dug down to the bottom on 3 corners and have dug a horizontal tunnel along the base from one corner. They’ve left one corner untouched for some reason. I haven’t figured out their masterplan yet, but I’m sure they are scheming.
September 25th 2010:
I set my ants free.
I set them free months ago.
I just didn’t get around to telling all of you.
I realized that I’m a compassionate person who believes all life is sacred.
… and since I wasn’t getting any free dairy, meat, or wool products from them, I concluded that the ants were just freeloading room and board off of me.
My pyramid sits empty.
I don’t know what I’m going to do with the 2 sphinx I’ve been carving!
