Ants Are Everywhere

In The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago ants can be seen crawling about almost anywhere.

For years, I have been keeping my kitchen clean; I have been making sure that the foodstuff that inadvertently made its way on the floor was removed and I personally saw to it that any small remnants of food was cleared away from off of my kitchen countertop.

However, the ants still explore the floor in the kitchen and the kitchen countertop; it is as though those little ones are on the constant hunt for food.

Whenever food is cooked, I have to make sure that I put the leftovers in the refrigerator as soon as the food has cooled.

And, the ants have good timing too; if you allowed your food to cool and you do not put it away in time, the ants are going to help themselves to it (Apparently, they love a home-cooked meal like everyone else).

Do the people in the United States and in the United Kingdom have this same problem with ants?

The ants deserve a chance at life too; however, at times, I do feel that they are competing with me. Thankfully, there is a lot of food to go around; enough for the ants and I.

That Darn Insect

When I almost completed my last lap around the field, an insect flew into my right eye; it burned like Hell (Thank goodness that it was the ending and not the beginning, because I would have been in a lot of trouble). 

It was quite a long time since an insect flew in my eye and each time it happened, it pained a lot.

I even thought about wearing goggles or some sort of protective glasses the next time I am going outdoors to exercise; but that might attract unwanted attention from others by looking like a comedian doing an excerpt from a hilarious stage performance.

Insects can ruin one's fun by going into someone's eye and I doubt that those insects wanted to play kamikaze.

As a preventative measure, I am going to squint my eyes whenever I am making laps around the field, so an insect (or insects) will not get into my eye.
