Why it's good to have clear salt shakers:

So that when you are leaning over the sink, shaking salt on your freshly hard-boiled local egg from the farmers market, you will be able to see the dead ant before you shake the salt on said egg.

Or as in my case, after eating an egg and a half you bother to investigate that darkish spot you've been seeing out of the corner of your eye each time you tip the shaker.

Oh well, finish your egg. They were the best tasting hard-boiled eggs you've ever had, and you can't let them go to waste.

After all, a dead ant in the salt is nowhere near as traumatic as an earwig in the mouthwash. That you may never recover from.

At least hard-boiled eggs hold up well to rinsing. Definitely not as gross as the earwig thing, although anything with pinchers on its butt has an automatic leg up in the gross category.

Ants have protein, don't they?

What's an earwig? And wouldn't the alcohol in the mouthwash sterilize it?

LOL! Hmm, I used to have clear salt-shakers but the current ones clearly not clear!

I won't go into some of the horrors I've found--spoil your appetite.

Thanks for your visit. I'm running way behind, hope to catch up someday! AK!

But then I don't like hardboiled eggs either. However, I do wish that we had some type of farmers market.

Coffeypot: Earwig.

I'm sure you are right about the boozy drink.
