Yikes, Ants!

Yesterday, I was pouring myself a cup of tea and thus reaching over my counter to the sugar tupperware. I was about to pour some sweet sugar baby when I noticed a tiny teeny ant crawling out from the top. Then I peered over the edge to get a closer look and saw entire tunnels and chambers carved in the sugar, filled with cousins ants. It would have been a cool science experiment if I hadn't been so disgusted. I filled the tupperware with scalding water while chanting, "Die ants die"! Then I did a little victory dance. Bwaaahhhhaaha.

Never, ever leave anything outside of your fridge in Senegal. Unless you need the extra protein.
