Hanging out around the cul-de-sac on a nice Saturday afternoon can lead to some odd behaviors. I noticed Jack and a couple other boys today hunched down on all fours on the sidewalk. I couldn't tell what they were doing from across the street so I walked over. I figured they were just looking at a bug or something but as I got closer, I noticed the boys were spitting on the sidewalk. "That's disgusting! What are you guys doing?" I asked.
Jack looked up at me and said, "We are drowning the ants. I got the Queen ant!"
Boys will be boys, I suppose.
