Ant Hunting We Will Go

Updated on April 29, 2012

Gotcha Now

My eyes aren't even open and what do I see

Yes it's an ant to greet me

Good morning sir I hear in a soft voice

I look down and frown

Ants don't talk I quickly think

Then again I have seen alot of crazy things in my life

So why not

A good morning to you my little insect enemy

Now is that any way to greet a friend

A friend huh

You are an insect and why would ever think we are friends

You like to read right ?


You have many books ?

I like to read

I have read all your books

What !!!!

First you are an ant

Second you can't talk

Third you now say you are my friend

Fourth you say you can read and have read all my books

I am puzzled but for curiosities sake tell me more

You have many friends

Old school friends,college,work,family the list goes on

Yeah so

But with all your friends how many have read any of your books that you have bought

No one

You say you love books and the reason why you love books because they teach us what we don't already know

Yes, how did you know that

Because I listen to you day after day

You only talk about books every day for the past thirty six years

What !!!

Will you stop doing that

If we are going to talk we have to have some ground rules

Now I have seen everything

An ant with an attitude

Well somebody has to tell you how life is

What do you mean ?

After reading all your books have you ever read one on ants


Why would I ?

Well if you did you would know ants are smart

Really smart

Then you would also know I am your friend

Now before you go out and buy new ant traps and put them in the bathroom

The old ones work just fine

Think again

You have wiped out half my family and most of my friends

I am willing to put the past behind us and let bigones be bigones

But we have to begin fresh

First we have to start talking man to ant

I perfer to be called Stan

I might just be loosing my mind

But since you caught me at a weak moment I will follow along with you for the moment

So Stan


You have said many things that are true

Yes I know

You have given me a reason to think

Yes I also know that

Can I talk Stan says with a very firm voice

We can go back and forth for hours and have lots of idle chit chat

But time is money and I have lots of things to do

This can all wait for later but now I have to make my breakfast

So I will talk to you in about an hour

I will meet you back here again

Now if I was you I wouldn't tell anyone

They might think you are a little off your rocker

But it is up to you ?

I would be the last ant to tell you what to do


After a long pause

Here I am talking to an ant and now the it is blowing me off

Because it is busy

I guess what do I have to lose

Sir my name is Stan I don't like being called an it

O.k.sorry Stan

We have a deal


As I get up to leave

Stan says hey, aren't we forgetting something

What ?

The ant traps ?

I reach down and grab and pick them up slowly

My wife will never believe this

I told you this can be our little secret

As I scratch my head for the eigth time in the past fifteen minutes

I walk out of the room

Hey. hey Stan yells back

What now ?

Could you please shut the door it is early in the morning and my wife is trying to sleep

Scratching my head again

I definitely need to be on medicine

What medicine I don't know

Something to calm me down


Something to make me believe ants don't talk


I know I am going back to bed and going back to forget this dream that is still in my head

      daisyflowrs Very interesting.In order to enter manhood in Satere Mawe custom,boys must wear a stuffed-full of stinging ants.Now that really bites it.Thanx for the ants info.Ants in the Pants has also been a popular kids game go figure.

      You know that saying, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"? Well, I believe Stan to be a spy! Here's why -

      raciniwa I especially don't like the red ants.They hurt.Thanx so much for dropping in.

      hahahaha...i find this very cute although i don't find their bites to be so...

      daisyflowrs I was thinking a heart to heart talk.But ants don't have any heart so I changed it to a hard to hard talk so he wouldn't be offended.Like a talk a father and son would have.I will be careful they are everywhere.Have a wonderful night and as always thanks for another laugh.

      Is "hard to hard talk" a pun or you just can't spell? I'm going with spelling. lol. Don't let Stan break you. Be strong. Ants way out number humans, be careful....

      daisyflowrs Stan and I had a hard to hard talk what is allowed and what isn't in the house.Absolutely no ants on the table.We are still negotiating back and forth on many areas.The outcome looks promising for both partys.Only time will tell.Thanx so much for finding the time to say a friendly hello.

    • daisyflowrs profile image

      daisyflowrs 6 years ago from Richmond, VA

      I'll make it easy for you. Stan the ant is considered a bug (I see where you were going with that:)). Hence, he is supposed to "bug" you. lol. Again, the advertisements are hilarious for this hub. I'm quite sure Stan is not happy about them!

    • DREAM ON profile image

      daisyflowrs Stan says so many things.I can hardly remember everything he says.He kind of bugs me after awhile.But he still doesn't compare to other ants.He is special. I just can't put my finger on it.Have a great day and hope all is well.

    • daisyflowrs profile image

      daisyflowrs 6 years ago from Richmond, VA

      Tell Stan hello for me. I wonder though. Did you misinterpret Stan? My son says when he lays down on the floor everything looks bigger than when he is standing. As for for friends, cheers!

      daisyflowrs We never know what each day will bring.I hope and pray for the love that protects us all.In the meantime experiencing so many thrilling adventures that one person can hardly enjoy unless with the help of so many friends and family to make it all wonderful.The more we laugh the more we can find that makes us laugh.So lets begin together to find a world inside our world one of passion and wonder.Have a great day and tell me more about all the things that make an ant just an ant.By the way Stan says hi and wants me to tell you the world is much bigger and better than you think.It is all where you stand that makes the difference.

      Nice hub in a hub! lol.

      daisyflowrs I will have to ask him next time I see him.I guess it might go something like this.Ofcourse the world is filled with alot of the bad things you have noticed.I don't think going to college is the answer.I think find what the children want to do with their life so they can make an impact on the world.If you base everything on money you will have a pile of green paper covered in germs that can buy you diner and a whole lot of stuff.It can never replace the joy of doing something you love.Having the satisfaction of having one of your students say you changed my life...if it wasn't for you...You helped me when no one else understand me and took time to help me help seen my potential when no one else could.You may never get paid the money that you expect but teachers join their profession because they have a gift.They want to help others like a home health aide who has a very tough job cleaning after other peoples messes.A plumber who comes when your toilet is backed up.He gets down and dirty and in the heart of it.You can always make a change.There are trashmen who need to pick up other peoples garbage.There are dentists who have to pull out wrotten teeth and see gum disease and somebodys mouth day after day.It is up to you to find the job you love or despise.The government is just made up of people who enact laws and we follow them.If the government is wrong it is the people who have to change their attitude and show what is important and what isn't.Change takes time.Most people want quick answers and when it comes to time they are busy with their own lives partying and having fun while other people work day and long into the night.You can lead the children to think for themselves or to follow others and let their future be decided by unhappy souls who don't care about others or life.Prisons are filled with people who make wrong choices and there is always room for one more.But it doesn't have to be that way.Many smart people go to prision but they did not have common sense to know what was wrong and what was right.In the end the years will pass and we shall see where we end up helping others to live a good and happy life.Being miserable and finding other people who agree with us.Only this time your a number not a person and society is a world away.

      Stan the, ant. Murder, savagery, mayhem is that not your normal day? I teach high school. That's all I have to say. Ha! My kids are great, I don't know their fate. None of them want to go to college. I try to debate but they are smart. Why waste money on an education in this economy? You say you have a Masters Degree? Where is your money? How can I argue their point? Teachers don't get paid enough up in this joint. The United States needs to open their eyes or there is going to be a hugely uneducated surprise!

      daisyflowrs Well he is locked up forever and ever.I am free as a bird to share another good word.picklesandrufus I constantly go in and out of day dreams and night dreams with touches of reality mixed in.I am not sure which is which I will let you decide.daisyflowrs An early morning start on the right foot.It is an American Classic.The real world has it's share of murderous thoughts and mayhem just open any paper and it is filled from corner to corner beginning to end.Just think of the money the huge publishers make informing so many of all the horrors of the world.They laugh all the way to the bank.Who is any wiser?I rather talk to a friendly ant named Stan who wants to help when he can.Have a good day.

      Did you not approve my comment? Did you think it a bit inappropriate? How dare thee!I'm currently reading Macbeth. Murderous thoughts and mayhem, that's what I am teaching our kids today... savagery, they love it! Approve it or thee be damned. I need to get ready for work. When we left off, Banquo was killed, but his son got away!!! Lady Macbeth is pissed because she was not part of this!

      Oye! You need professional help. The homeless guy you talk to is not a professional. He claims to see visions, but he is also on acid 90% of the time.

      Dim Flaxenwick My wife caught me in the bathroom watching two ants.They must of come in through a crack or some way with the warm weather.The story unfolded when I lost one when it went up my arm out of sight.Moving like lightning.The other one went back under the radiator.Then I moved two ant traps from the kitchen to the bathroom.This is before the ant started talking to me.The rest is history.

      Ann Randolph I have come so close but for now I will just watch them move fast across the floor.Wondering once again where they go and how they live.Deborah Brooks Those little ants what do they really want???daisyflowrs Ants that talk that is absolutely rediculous.Like the world being round not flat and men flying in the air like birds.It can never be done.The greatest minds in the world thought in the early 1800's every invention that could be invented was invented and there is nothing more to invent.Boy how wrong were we and could we be wrong again???Thanx everyone for a few laughs and have a great day.

      Here's what I suggest. I believe you took medication, I just don't think you took your prescribed medication! Ha! This is a great hub!!! You just got schooled by an ant. You believed in the ant and it convinced you to get rid of the ant traps. Stan is a smooth criminal and as my son would say, " you are gullgible".
