I’m not going to lie. I like reality TV. Well most of it. There are a few things I can do without though. For instance, I don’t need anyone to tell me there’s only one rose left. I can count. I done learned numbers a long time ago. And I can do without watching people eat things that were never meant for human consumption. Like when Bear Grylls ate this Zambian grub and I actually threw up in my mouth because- well actually, I’m not going to tell you what happened because I like you (and I don’t want to relive that spine crawling, nauseating, brush your teeth and squirm all over the place moment.) If you really want to know, you can Youtube it.

Enter my idea of a pest fest. Do you see the difference between Bear’s face and our friend Chris’s face? This is the kind of pest eating I can do! And it’s healthy and tasty and a fun project for your kiddos.
