little ant, BIG WORLD
I was in a big city airport the other day, crashed on the floor because our flight kept getting delayed, and I thought I'd pass out from shear exhaustion of our week-long househunt expedition...when I noticed an ant walking across the carpet. I couldn't help but think how in the hell does a tiny ant end up in a place like this? We are on the FOURTH floor of a major CITY airport, and here is this tiny little ant--determined to get wherever it's going. I wanted to smash it, put it out of it's endless misery...but I simply couldn't do it. I actually found myself amazed at this little creature; even making up some children's story about how it escaped the weeds to find food in the airport for it's dying aunt and baby cousins...who was I to get in the way of a major rescue mission?! Rock on little ant. The people are behind you 100%.
