The TMI Files. There was a young lady who swallowed a fly.I don't know why she swallowed a fly. Or an ant, or another ant, or that blowie.
blech. I don't know what it is with children. I know in the toddler stages they are learning to exert their influence on the world around to see what changes they can effect.
I know that they are testing boundaries.
What I don't know is, why does she insist on eating insects and not good stuff like eye fillet steak? Why won't she eat eggs or oranges or tomatoes?
Okay, she eats pasta, and sausages, and apples, bananas, sultanas and cheese until it comes out of her ears.
But her favourites of the moment belong to invertebrata rather than the refrigerator.
Mind you, it could be worse - my sis apparently used to eat spider webs as a little tacker, and her daughter was caught with a spider in her mouth. Luckily the spider was dead. I think I stuck with the usual mud pies. I'm not game to ask the oldies.
