food/ant for thought

i've been teaching a summer school art class with wren. the kids are rad...there is a particular tiny 7-year-old girl named jenna who is adorably sensitive and eloquent. on monday i was telling a few of the kids that i ate an ant when i was little because i was trying to copy mowgli from the jungle book, and that it was spicy...

jenna: i ate an ant once!
me: yeah?
jenna: they are kind of spicy.
me: i know!
jenna: why?
me: i don't know, maybe--
jenna: cuz God made em that way?
me: yeah.
jenna: (nods) probably.
