There is a good chance that I either already have or I am going to eat at least one ant in my salad.
It's my own fault. I neglected to check the cheese grater for ants after I left it next to the sink last night.
Whatever. I was a missionary kid.*
This is the last of my current package of spinach, so I can't make a new salad.
And I was/am too hungry to be bothered with things like inspecting the salad for ants. I have eating to do here.
