C. C is for Chrysalis. I want to keep the milkweed for, among others, this ‘soon-to-be-a-Monarch’ Cocoon I have been Carefully guarding, day by day, hour by hour. Spraying the aphids with pesticides doesn’t seem like such a good plan.
D. D is for Disgusting! I go buy 1500 refrigerated Lady Bugs, who appear to be Dead until they warm up one Degree. Then they all come to life. Abby Discovers this when she pulls the package out from behind the beer and inquires, "What’s thi…DAAAAGGHH!"
E. E is for an Environmentally sound plan. I liberate about a hundred Lady Bugs directly onto the milkweed plants.
G. G is for GROSS! Within three minutes Sophie begins pouncing and chewing on said lizards.
H. H is for Hannibal, who decides to dive, shrieking Cak! Cak! Cak!, in an attempt to either drive Sophie from his perceived territory or possibly, carry her into his nest to feed his Hatchlings.
