Here's what does, that her "experiment" in nonviolence towards flies has ended tragically...
SHE ATE ONE WHOLE FOR BREAKFAST THIS MORNING! YUP!
"In my defense - "
"YOU HAVE NO DEFENSE, MOM, AND A MILLION NEW CUDDLE CUPS AIN'T GONNA COVER UP THE TRUTH OF WHAT YOU DID! SHAME ON YOU!"
"YumYum, if put into context - "
"SHAME ON YOU!"
"Would you at least explain what happened and how it happened?"
"FINE! So, mom got up and made coffee: SHAME ON YOU!"
"Can we move this along, YumYum? I drink coffee every day, shade-grown, bird-friendly, free-trade,
"FINE, mom, whatEVER! So, mom makes her coffee then does something, who knows what...then goes back into the kitchen she has been allowing the flies to in live rent-free, although, admittedly there are fewer than last summer...she checks the surface of the coffee, because they are also Pacific Northwest flies, so they seem to go more for java than anything else - "
"And I did NOT SEE ONE FLY, YumYum - "
"Right, she did not see one fly. BUT SHE DRANK ONE WHOLE! SHE SWALLOWED A WHOLE FLY! ATE AND DRANK A FORMERLY LIVING, BREATHING CHILD OF GOD:
"I didn't know it was in there, YumYum - they ususually float on the top and I can save most of them from drowning...how many happily caffeinated flies have I saved from drowning in JavaBliss?"
"GUILTY OF FLY CONSUMATION! SHAME ON YOU, MOM,
SHAME ON YOU!"
"The only thing I am guilty of is after realizing I had just swallowed something, and we still don't KNOW exactly WHAT...is exclaiming 'UH-OH, OH-NO I DIDN-T! NO! NO! NO!' out loud."
"And yet you did so now we and the whole world knows! You had a fly for breakfast, mom. You have a fly carcass in you, in the belly of the beast!
THAT JUST NASTY!"
"YumYum, I drank the coffee to help the migraine so I can go to the Big Farm Store and get everything I need to do a deep-clean of all your cages today so you can all have and enjoy your new cuddle cups, huts, tunnels..."
"Yes. And my head, my aching head. But do I let that stop me? NO!"
"Carry on, then. Justice has been served."
