Back to the lunch table...we're sitting there and he just lets them land on his food! This is so disgusting and SICK! When I was little someone told me what actually happens when a fly lands on food and it turned my stomach so much that I'll never forget it. I'm not sure if it's true but it stuck with me forever and I honestly wouldn't mind if all flies on earth were forever gone and EXTINCT!
Tucker is sitting there watching a fly land on his sandwich and watching it go through it's disgusting series of habits...
Tucker: "Look Mom, when it lands it rubs it's hands together like this [immitates the nasty bugger].
Me: "Tucker do you have any idea how gross flies are? Did you know that when a fly lands on your food he throws up [I'm sooo sorry for this part, but this is what I was told] on it, then eats it? So don't let it land on your food!"
Tucker: [...has a not-so-sure look on his face and is not as disgusted as I was hoping...]
Sawyer comes walking in. She had fallen asleep earlier and is now awake and ready to join us for lunch.
A fly lands on Sawyer's sandwich
Tucker: "Sawyer, don't let that fly land on your sandwich. He'll throw it up in the air, then catch it, then eat it!"
The laughter begins....from me, of course! :-)
