Here on the vast, dry plain, I must be on the lookout for those elusive creatures, those terrifyingly swift and speedy monsters that, left unchecked, could and would wreck havoc on us all. Never fear however, Miss Pia, your personal Bug Hunter is here!

Slowly, I approach a popular feeding ground and spot….a behemoth! OMC! The wings on the thing! A mere flutter and a typhoon surely is birthed on the other side of the globe. I must protect us all! Dare I whap it? Carefully, carefully…

Mom: Pia, it’s just a teensy gnat.

  1. Teensy? I’ve seen them…they are huge! I think.

  2. Pia Bean, you are such a cutie, and we are so glad that you are on patrol. We are all great bug hunters as well. We can stay occupied for hours watching their antics and occasionally catching one for a little snack. Yum! Hope all of you have a great week.
