Like I’ve stated before, I was pretty mean to bugs when I was a kid. To all you insect ghosts floating around me… Haunting me for the evil I did to you… Let me just say that I am truly sorry.

Except you mosquitoes. You can all go to hell.

As an adult, I try to give insects the same respect I would give a mouse. I’ll capture bugs in my house and release them outside. Ok I still swat flies, but those guys are a-holes like mosquitoes.

When my nephew was little, during a family Easter brunch at a restaurant, we were outside looking at some ants. He wanted to stomp the ants and I stopped him saying that “Those are the good guys! They clean things up!”  He looked at me like I was a Martian or something. He really didn’t get why I would think of bugs – any bugs – as being “good”.

I don’t know what his feelings on bugs are now that he’s older. Maybe he can comment below and tell you all if he’s gotten over his fear/loathing of our exoskeletal friends.  I wonder if he’s sorry for stomping any bugs. I’m gonna guess “no”…
