Bug Brain Power

Sometimes you can read something that just makes you laugh. That was Maggie with her fourth post of the week. It started with the line:

At this point, I’d say 90% of my available brain power is going to bugs. Trivial is all I got left

It is such an absurd statement and yet very true. Now she meant this literally since she is compiling 200 bug collection for her graduate level class. But I think the statement has much more power. It could become a proverb along the lines of
a bird in hand is worth two in the bush
a stitch in time saves nine
90% of my brain power is going to bugs, trivial is all I got.

What do you think? That is certainly how I feel in the morning before a cup of coffee.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
