ants in my lunch

Just now, as I was making my Nutella sandwich, I noticed tiny little ants crawling around the inside of the jar top. Then I peered into the jar itself, and sure enough, there were tiny little ants crawling around on the Nutella. How the hell did they sneak in? I always, always keep the jar firmly lidded.

So anyway, I put the jar aside for disposal. But I couldn't see any ants in my sandwich, so I decided to eat it anyway. Is that really yucky?

You know the the five-second rule: if you drop something on the floor but pick it up within five seconds, it doesn't have any germs. Well I propose a visible-ants rule - if you can't see the ants, they aren't there :)

You are more brave than I
cathi - The can't see rule wouldn't work for me

cathi: it was the ants' poo I was worried about!

angela: hmm...so do you find yourself eating wormy apples etc more often than a sighted person?

Just think of it as extra protein. That's what Him Indoors always says to me when a wee midge falls into my wine...

P.S. HI just wandered past and wanted me to tell you that he thinks that the pink colour scheme on your blog looks "pretty spunky"!

That's one way to add meat to an otherwise vegetarian sandwich.

desiree: gee thanks! Though I can't take credit, as it was a Blogger template...

lumpyheadsmom: unfortunately, I'm a bit of a carnivore and should be aiming for more vegetarian meals...
