Where are you going lonely, lil bug?

The other day I watched a small bug crawl across the ground. I wondered where it was going and why there were no other bugs with it. Was this bug capable of being lonely? Aside from love bugs, I rarely see insects hanging out in pairs, they always seem to be swarming or completely alone.  What does a bug do all day all by his lonesome?  As he continued on his way and out of sight I wondered if it even knew where it was going. Was it lost? I really should stop anthropomorphizing  everything in sight.

Don't stop. I like it when people anthropomorphize. I do it all the time.


PS Have I congratulated you guys yet? If not, congratulations! And if I have, well, congratulations again. Can't get enough congratulations when a family is born!

Perhaps bugs are not gregarious beings? Perhaps they look at us and wonder at our feeling so lonely at times.
How are you and baby doing?

I do this too. So does my boy. He says he can hardly STAND not knowing what bugs are thinking about.
