Truth Tuesday: I Drank Bugs

I'm always parched with thirst in the morning when I wake up.

So I've gotten in the habit of leaving a glass of water by my bed.

This morning I woke up and glugged my water. I was about half-way through my glass when I looked down....

And saw about six gnats floating in it.

I don't know how many bugs I drank.

Extra protein? Any other positive ways to spin this? Leave them in the comments.

And have a fantastic day!


  1. LOL. I've eaten a few bugs in my time, too, and I never seemed to be able to console myself with either of my parents' reactions...
    Mom always said, "Extra protein!" and Dad said, "It makes you tough...puts hair on your chest!" :)
    But the eternally positive spin: someday you can put this in a book!

  2. Um, what doesn't kill you, will make you stronger. LOL

  3. Well, up here (Maine) you can't walk outside without swallowing/inhaling a few black flies. So it can't be too bad for you! ;-)

  4. Maybe there were only were 6 flies to begin with and you didn't swallow any. LOL, that's what I'd tell myself anyway.

    I always wondered why my great aunt placed a napkin over her glass at night.

    Now I know why.

  5. Um...maybe you could point out that in many countries bugs are a delicacy. You should read BEETLE MCGRADY EATS BUGS to your kids. They will love it.

  6. Oh man! *Shivers*

    I'd go the extra protein spin for sure. :)

  7. protein was exactly my thought, after a large shudder!
    needs a positive spin allright!

  8. This is why I keep a bottle of water by my bed instead.

    I once drank half a cup of hot cocoa from one of those coffee-tea-cocoa vending machines before realizing that I was drinking dead ants. They must have gotten into the sugar inside the machine.

  9. Now you can say: "Been there. Done that."

    Running in the evenings, I've accidently swallowed gnats before, and I haven't noticed any side effects. It's all good, right?"

  10. I've done that too. It's better not to know. If you had drank them all, you would never have known!

  11. Sorry, I have no positive things to say about drinking bugs :) It's happened to me as well and I can't stand it.

  12. Oh no!!! That's so icky! I've heard of eating bugs, but I'd rather not drink them in my water! Try a water bottle :)This happens to me as well, but they are mosquitoes and beatles. Thus the reason I've invested in probably 100 water bottles.
