So we made the above video to show in Missions chapel today (if you can't see it, click here). It wasn't my idea (since I wasn't deep in the Amazon jungle and to my knowledge, I didn't eat any bugs while I was an SM), but I do what my boss tells me to.
This morning I decided to cook some rice to take with my lentils for lunch. I was in a hurry, so I just poured the rice and water into the rice cooker without washing it first. As I was about to put the lid on, I noticed quite a few brown flecks floating in the water. Hm, I guess there's a good reason for washing rice after all, I thought.
But upon closer inspection, I noticed the brown flecks were moving. On their own volition. My rice was riddled with bugs, and this was no dream.
The bugs had gotten into the entire bag of rice, so I dumped it in the trash, likely canceling out all the rice I've ever donated to starving children through freerice.com. Luckily the bugs had not discovered my bag of brown rice, so I didn't starve for lunch.
Funny story, right? So supper rolls around, and I eat some random leftovers. I decided to finish my meal with cinnamon graham crackers and homemade applesauce. Yummy...
Yucky! There were bugs crawling all over my crackers!
Unfortunately, I didn't even notice until I'd already eaten several crackers. Apparently I can't be a hypocrite even if I want to.
