Farley Drexel Hatcher (aka Fudge) accidentally swallows a bug in one of Judy Bloom’s books. In the story, the young boy is very upset about the whole thing until he discovers that by doing so he has become a part of a club. I believe it was the ISAF (I Swallowed A Fly) club. Acceptance into the club membership is NOT an active decision; the members are “chosen” so to speak. Fudge, the new member of the ISAF Club, was proud of newly acquired bragging rights.
Well, I have bragging rights too. I have earned a lifetime club membership from today’s run alone. I don’t even know how many of these flying bugs voted me into the membership. It appeared that I was the unanimous choice among the bugs of flight however.
I might add, that swallowing bugs is no easy feat. Swallowing bugs while running AND breathing is an especially difficult task. I must boast that I am talented in this skill. Now that I have bragged about my new honorable entry into the “club”, if you will excuse me, I have to brush my teeth.
