Kam came into my room this afternoon with his bucket in hand. "Ma I have a surprise for you" he said. I got a little nervous of what the surprise might be. Sand and water, grass, dog droppings. Then he tipped the bucket and there it was. A smashed dead praying mantis. Kam was delighted in his new find. This is the conversation that followed.
Me: Oh kam you didn't have to kill the praying mantis. They are nice.
Kam: No ma they are not nice they are bad.
Me: Okay Kam go put it back outside.
Kam starts heading for the door but then instead turns to the kitchen.
Ma: Kam take it outside. ( The thing was pretty gross!)
Kam: No Ma I have to cook it.
Ma: No Kam we don't eat praying mantis.
Kam: Yes we do all we have to do is boil it.
Praying Mantis for dinner anyone?
