Fly Filosophy

Monday, July 27, 2020

Though I'm a Keto guy, which means I eat meat, I have a real problem killing anything. There was a fly trapped behind a screen this morning. The screen opens easy enough, but the fly was still kind of asleep, or perhaps too cold to be fully awake.

I made special efforts to not injure or kill it, and ultimately if flew away. As my friend Holly would say, "You're a 'nutter' ". Yes I am. I looked up how long flies live, and it is about 2 weeks. So how many extra days of life did I give him? Maybe 7?

I also have an electronic mosquito zapper in my back yard. How many lives have I shortened with that? Could I just collect the days of the lives of those mosquitos and add them to my own?

Yup, I'm a nutter.
