Last Friday I was passing through the Home Depot garden center on my way out of the store when I noticed a table full of milkweed plants being destroyed by spider mites.
(did you hear my gasp-’cause this is a pitiful sight!)
I quickly assessed the situation (‘sitch’ if you’re 20) and realized that as soon as the HD garden peeps realized this, they would toss every plant in the garbage. I did a search and rescue and took as many monarch caterpillars as I could find, then RAN to my car.
Ok, I didn’t run because that would hurt.
But I did feel a slight tinge of guilt, then I felt joy over being a life saver.
Not the candy.
Once in my car, I only had my tervis to keep them contained in.
Guess how many times I tried to drink my caterpillars on the way home?
That was my Friday adventure.
Saving the butterfly world one misdemeanor at a time.
