er, um, excuse me, but… it seems AN ANT’S IN MY PANTS!

My goodness, this ant’s behavior is beyond the pale

Of course a situation like this is sure to induce a feeling of uneasiness, make one go a bit pale and, possibly cause a person to feel, well, um… antsy. Why, this situation pales in comparison to just about anyone else getting into your, ahem, pants.

However, when faced with a dilemma such as this, one must remember to remain calm. An ant’s curiosity lasts only as long as it’s attention span, which is really quite short.

Feigning nonchalance is best.

In 10 to 15 minutes the novelty of wearing your jeans will no doubt wear off. The ant will soon run off to check out something shiney and you will once again have possesion of your pants, your sanity and the flush in your cheeks.

    I’ve had ants in my pants. Fire ants, actually. And they were nowhere near as docile as this fellow! Excellent illustration and a funny commentary too!

    tee hee your brain is something to admire, it just is.

  29. Monica Says:

    You have such great ideas, Linda! I love the ant, with the one leg already in the pants, trying them on. Also I love the boy’s pajamas pants (with bunnies!) This is indeed a great illustration (and you’re a very, very funny writer!)
