Traveling Bug

I'm back!
Ok so I've been back for almost a week, sue me.
Where did I go?
Houston Texas for a business meeting.
I make it a priority to bring Bug something special from my trips.

My days where filled with meetings and evenings with business dinners.
So I didn't have much time to do much shopping except at the Houston Airport.
I picked out a nice NASA t-shirt since he has been saying he wants to be an Astronaut.
While I stood at the counter I noticed some suckers in a box on the counter.
They had something in them....

Oh yes, that is a Scorpion.
Yes, it is real. Here are the ingredients just to prove it.

Ingredients: Malitol syrup, SCORPION, artificial flavoring and coloring.

I had to get it for my bug loving Bug. There was a day of show and tell where he thought up the following conversation.

Bug: I'll show K the sucker like this (holds sucker where you can't see the scorpion) and K will say " Oh cool a sucker". Then I will say " Oh contrare" and turn it around.

Then he announced that he was going to eat the sucker.

Husband didn't believe him and asked 100 times if it truly was edible.

But yes he ate it.

Here is the proof:

When asked what the scorpion tasted like, Bug replied " It tasted like sucker"

Only in Texas... or California where the sucker was actually made.

Oh yeah - that's a Texas thing baby. I am surprised he ate it. I'm more surprise you let him - yuck!

Well at least you should have had good weather in HOU while you were there (some things never change - I still use "nn" on lists). Hopefully you got to eat some good Tex-Mex ....

Houston is nice but the bugs there are HUGE and there are too many people...I prefer the Hill Country where we were.

Hugs - Lindy

My hubby would not have! Go figure! LOL But then I've always been pretty much a tomboy all my life!
Neat post! I love it!

Holy cow, your son is the complete opposite of mine! We have those things here (AZ) and my son spotted one in the bathroom one time and wouldn't go in there for a week. I still have to stand in front of him at the toilet. I made sure to show him this picture of a little boy who obviously has NO fear of bugs. That's great!

BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog:)
