A Table Guest

Dayton alerted me with extreme concern that there was a large moth on the table.  I think he’d have passed out had it touched him.  It looks really cool.

I placed a kitchen strainer over it, slid a firm piece of paper under it, then a clipboard under that, and walked it outside.  I had Dayton hold the clipboard (under extended protest) while I went in to get the camera.  All is well now.  The world has been saved.  There was no appreciation visibly offered.  Forgiveness may be an issue.

    We ALL think this is super cool. All the kids agree, they wouldn’t have touched it either!

    There is a funny postscript to this story. Turns out that the impressive and scary creature did not just simply flutter into the house through the open front door and descend upon the table, instilling fear and trembling among the house dwellers. Grandma found it outside on her walk and thought it was dead so she carried it inside and placed it there perhaps for the enjoyment and wonderment of our science classes. Unfortunately, the science teacher and students were sore afraid and the poor creature was not dead but apparently in a semi-hibernation state. So our “table guest” was more like an unwilling hostage, but we didn’t ask the creature for its opinion on the situation. We’re Americans and we do whatever we want if we think it’s for the best interest of science, personal interest, and peace and security. Which is why I set it free. 🙂
