Bubby kept asking if he could have more tarantulas for dinner. It took me a while to figure out what he meant. Our convo went something like this:
Bubby: Mom, can I have some more tarantulas?
Me: Can you have some more WHAT?!
Bubby: Tarantulas, can I have some more?
Me: You want more WHAT?!
Bubby: Tarantulas, you know, those yummy things you gave me that I really liked? Are there any left & can I have some?
Me: Oh, yeah, there are some left, you can have them after you eat your chicken.
At this point, we had all caught on & were laughing so hard!
It was SO cute, it didn't matter how many times we corrected him, he called them tarantulas. SO, what are "TARANTULAS" you ask? Well... let's see, they are small, they are orange with white "veins" running through them, & they are super yummy...
So, yes, I guess I feed my family tarantulas for dinner! I may try these again, they were such a big hit here, laughs & all!
And here, I thought I had the pickiest eaters ever LOL! I'm tellin ya, this child cracks us up constantly, I think we'll keep him around. Hmmm, wonder what he'll call the spaghetti we're having tomorrow night... bloody worms maybe?!
