Random Entry: Ant-friendship

This is the most random entry I think I’m ever going to make.

I’m sitting on the floor in my room, and whenever I do that – for some unknown reason – ants always come scurrying towards me. I’m flattered, I really am.

But they’re annoying little creatures so I keep smashing them whenever they come close enough to my leg.

I killed smashed about five of them. It sort of looked like a battlefield, with their tiny, lifeless bodies scattered not too far away from me.

And two ants came by…to collect the bodies. My hand hovered over one of them and I know he sensed the danger but he kept struggling to drag the dead ant along the floor back to wherever their base must be.

I smashed it. But it was a gentle press and you know what? He struggled to get to the dead ant and still tried to carry it.

Then I smashed it completely.

Not on purpose!! I was really moved -so much – by the ant’s act of friendship but I forgot it was the same ant because I went back to watching a video, so I saw the movement out the corner of my eye and instinctively just smashed it.

😦

That ant taught me a very valuable lesson though.

I don’t even know where the other one disappeared to but he must be happy that he survived.

    That was a touching and creative little anecdote.

    Suddenly, I wonder if the titans in Shingeki no Kyojin ever think this as they’re smashing up humans? It’s a strangely humbling thought.

      Thank you.

      Like Annie; I’d really want to know if she felt any sort of remorse when she killed those soldiers. I doubt the others have solid thought processes >.> the intelligent ones are very few.

      Selflessness too. When the other ant sensed the danger, he dropped the dead one and ran off. And that’s what I expected the other ant to do too but it didn’t.
