Tell The Truth Thursday – Eating Crickets

Tell The Truth Thursday

Welcome to “Tell The Truth Thursday” where the question that has been posted in my right side bar gets answered by me and you…and sometimes my husband too! Did you prepare your post and are you ready to drop your URL into the McLinky so that we all can follow? I hope so!

The question this week is:

    Would you be willing to eat a bowl of live crickets for $40,000?

When my sister was born, I did everything with her. I remember sitting totally still and silent in her crib watching her sleep and waiting for her to wake up. At that young age I wanted a baby and my sister fit the bill. My dollies would wet their fake diapers when I gave them a bottle of water, but my sister actually ate, laughed and played.

My sister ate EVERYTHING. She even ate things that we were supposed to pretend to eat. After that fiasco, I kept a closer watch on her and what she put in her mouth when we played, but I was a child too. My sister loved rollie pollies. One day we were happily playing dollies. I remember talking up a storm in my own make-believe world and when I looked up at my sister, she had a rollie pollie crawling on her lips and giggling. I FREAKED! I abhor bugs now as well as when I was a child. By the time Mom got to the room, the rollie pollie was in my sister’s mouth and Mom had to dig it out.

I did not and do not like bugs of any kind. Money can often make life much easier. I know that crickets are considered a delicacy in many countries and are often covered in chocolate. So would I eat a bowl of live crickets for $40,000. No. I wouldn’t even do it for a million dollars. I feel like puking just thinking about eating a cricket.

for $40,000 yes I would – I would probably vomit while I was doing it – but $40,000 would pay 1 year college tuition….

Love to you

No, absolutely not! I could never watch Fear Factor, because they made them eat all manner of nastiness!

Oh and I left you some linky love on my blog today 🙂

There is no way I would ever eat a bowl of live crickets. I think if someone stuck the barrel of a gun to my head and said, "Eat, or else," I would probably choose "else."
