We received a delicious, dark brown, homemade, Panamanian Fruitcake from Lynn's visiting teacher who, as you may have guessed, is Panamanian. It was sitting on our pink, black, and white granite counter top where we sampled it each day a little at a time in order to minimize guilt, extend our tasting pleasure, and not overdue fruitcake intake.
The other day I stopped by, sampled a generous bite, made appropriate noises and noted that my tongue tingled at this tasty tidbit. Had I just not noticed that before? About an hour later Lynn mentioned that she discovered the remains of the fruitcake was covered with ants!!
Lessons learned:I don't know what else to say.
1) Our countertop is excellent camouflage for ants.
2) Eating ants makes your tongue tingle.
3) Ants seemingly have no uncles but like fruitcake.
