"there's something in it!"

we had breakfast outside the other morning (mariposa koa, outside of yosemite) and afterwards the girls went over to the playground to play while mitch and i moved our trailer to a new spot in the park. lala, like she often does, left the lid off of her propel water. i saw this, and replaced the lid.

after playing for awhile, she came back all hot and sweaty. she needed a drink. she had come into the trailer to cool off in the air conditioning and brought her drink with her. i was busy straightening up and turned around just in time to see her spitting her drink back into the bottle. i immediately said, "lala, don't do that!" as soon as her mouth was empty of the propel, she looks at me with a disgusted look on her face and says, "but there's something in it!" still a little annoyed, i take the bottle from her and look down into it and see a dead wasp floating in her drink!

that could have turned out much worse than it did!

That actually happened to me at girls camp when drinking black cherry soda. I still can't drink that flavor because of the memory of the bee in my mouth. -H
