Welcome to the A-Z Challenge! Every day, except Sundays, I will do a post featuring each letter of the alphabet. Most of these posts will be stories of things that have happened in the past. But once in a while, if it works out, I'll do a current story.
Today letter, A, is about Ants. Three years ago, my son, who was six, decided it would be great fun to dig up a red ant nest. The ants did not think that was a good idea, so they crawled in his pants and caused a whole lot of trouble!
I was in the kitchen when I heard the screaming.
I ran into the garage and found my boy frantically trying to get ants off of his legs.
"Get out of your clothes!" I ordered. The ants were all over his shorts, shirt, shoes, and socks.
He quickly obliged and ran into the house. Meanwhile, this Mama waged war against the little red varmints. I got out a can of Raid and put an end to their lives.
Now we have a little understanding with the ants. My boy won't mess with them and they won't mess with us. Otherwise they'll face the wrath of the Queen Mama!
