Some people just don't get it!

15 years ago

A few days ago I pulled up some Cynanchum laeve vines in my yard that had either monarch eggs or caterpillars on them before I mowed. I stuck them in water until I decided what to do with them.

I was checking on them yesterday when a friend called, and I told her I was checking on my caterpillars. I explained to her that they were Monarch caterpillars, and I had saved them from certain death by lawnmower. She was like, "Ooh, why would you want to do that? Caterpillars are gross!" I asked her if she liked butterflies, she said yes, and I told her we wouldn't have any butterflies without caterpillars, and besides, they're cute caterpillars. She said, "Yeah, but they're disgusting!"

How could anyone think they're disgusting!?! I can understand if it's not really her thing, but how could she think those innocent little creatures are gross!?!

Different strokes for different folks, I guess...
